Approachable and aromatic, it opens with fresh floral and herbal notes, along with aromas of red cherries and wild raspberries.
The entry is rich and mouth-coating, with completely integrated tannins. On the palate, you get loads of Asian spices, red cherries, and fresh picked plums, which all lead to a long, soft finish. Jjuicy notes of black cherries, tobacco, and cedar pencil, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a fruit-forward, juicy texture, good acidity, and a clean finish. It's a delicious Bordeaux blend that's well worth buying. Drink this wine with friends over the next 5-7 years.
