Ruby-red. Shockingly deep in color for a ten-year-old wine. Explosive aromas of cherry compote, black raspberry, blood orange, Asian spices and smoky minerals. Pure, vibrant and sweet, offering intense cherry and red berry flavors, with tangy mineral spine and an exotic smokiness. Extremely deep but energetic, with a powerful echo of minerals and singed orange on the endless finish. This is remarkably youthful but highly alluring already.

I love the complexity of fruit and spice to this wine with its hints of dried fruits, figs and roses. Full and layered. Very ripe yet fresh. Concentrated yet lively. Goes on for minutes.
