Balsamic herbs and violets ring out over red-blue fruits. The wine is elegant, definitively Atlantic with great length. The cold sensations are relieved by sweet spices and deep earthiness. There is a clear sense of cold in the damp mountain soil aromas, from which rise a 'spring-like' awakening, with blossom smells, mint and verbena and an electric mineral tingle emerging. Tannins are beautiful and run the show in the mouth, full and deep, softly, earthily coating, then coaxing, engendering a slow, low outward release promising a long developmental future.
