A fresh, cool and densely fruited nose display a broad variety of aromas that include menthol, cassis, smoked game, earth, anise and plenty of floral characters. The relatively refined medium weight plus flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the tautly muscular finish where a hint of bitter cherry appears. This needs to develop better depth though the underlying material appears to be present for that to gradually occur with extended bottle age.
