($54) Dark, bright red. Deep red and dark berry aromas are complemented by musky tobacco, underbrush and dried flowers. Fleshy and sweet, with dark cherry and black raspberry flavors, velvety texture and good back-end grip. Finishes with lingering sweetness and good clarity.

Very tight and compact, this is firm and spicy, with raspberry, black cherry, anise and sage notes that are full-bodied but not offering much. Ends with a mineral and pebble edge.
NR alcohol Aromas: smooth cherry and other red fruits with some mineral Palate: ripe and smooth red fruit flavors with well integrated acidity Impression: pristine focus throughout shows why this producer is short-listed for so many collectors
