This is more expressive and a bit more elegant with its cool and airy nose of plum, violets, various red berries, and earth and humus elements. There is a subtle smokiness to the supple, round and generously proportioned flavors that also display a touch of rusticity but less austerity. This too could be enjoyed young but again even a small amount of patience should be well repaid.
