Purple, floral, blueberried, cedary. Hints of mint, but not to a distracting degree. Gorgeously pure, fine, ripe and elegant. An exquisite wine. Perfect in form, flavour and structure, and never in any sense overdone – even if there is warmth through the finish. Terrific floral afterglow here and despite its power, it still presents as elegant and spicy.
