Ripe red cherry aromas and an earthy minerality accompany a complex interplay of savory herbs, citrus and dark chocolate. Subtle notes of red berries, leather and baking spices add to the intricacy. Deep flavors of plum and ripe strawberries are complemented by a rich and graceful mouthfeel and an exceptional lingering finish.
