Vinous

Brilliant violet. An expansive bouquet evokes dark berry liqueur, Indian spices, violet candy and incense, brightened by a smoky mineral nuance that builds in the glass. Sappy, sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering pliant black raspberry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors complemented by exotic five-spice powder and white pepper accents. Spicy, sweet and seamless on the remarkably persistent finish, which displays velvety, harmonious tannins and resonating floral and blue fruit notes.

Striking black fruit and violets mingle on a deep bouquet. Immensely stylish and prolonged – lights up the day. Pure fruit, sparky tannins and real complexity.Drinking Window 2021 - 2050.
