This too is attractively perfumed with its pure array of spicy red and dark currant aromas that once again are nuanced by hints of violet and tea. There is plenty of mid-palate density to the lavish and more mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that deliver solid depth and length on the well-balanced finish.
