(aged in one- and three-year-old French oak barrels) Limpid ruby-red. A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet displays ripe red fruit, incense and floral aromas, along with a bright mineral overtone. Juicy and focused on the palate; a jolt of tangy acidity gives spine to densely packed raspberry, boysenberry, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors. Finishes sweet and extremely long, displaying smooth tannins and a return of the floral quality.
