Fruit forward, slatey driven style. Subtle dark fruit profile highlighted by perfumed aromatics of violet and lavender. Good fruit sweetness balanced by a very well integrated wood regime.

Clean entry with fruit that follows the nose. Medium weight and a structured mouthfeel carry the purity of the fruit well. Well balanced acid adds to the structure, with both varietals’ ripe tannin structure evident. Medium finish that delivers balanced wood and alcohol without detracting from the fruit.Style: Ripe, fruit forward and focused. Wonderful color and depth.
