Deep bright-hued red. Expansive, mineral-tinged cherry and raspberry liqueur scents, along with hints of candied flowers and Asian spices that build in the background. Silky and broad on entry and then more taut in the midpalate, offering appealingly sweet red fruit, spicecake and rose pastille flavors that show excellent clarity and lift. Smooth tannins frame the finish, which hangs on with strong, floral-driven tenacity.
A perfumed nose showcases strawberry, anise and tea spice aromatics. Experience ripe, fresh raspberry, red plums and strawberry compote with a hint of subtle cedar. The fine texture and silky tannins enhance the vanilla, brown sugar, and leather notes on the finish.
