"Bold blackberries and plums framed in gently earthy notes and fragrance. The palate delivers a smooth, elegant and supple feel, where red plums meet mulberries in a fresh and neatly groomed mode. This has immediate appeal and medium-term aging potential."

"Detailed, with an appealing precision to the mineral-laced plum, black cherry and date flavors. Spice and black tea notes linger on the finish. The tannins are dense but polished."
