Healthy dark red. Precise aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, flowers and spices. Juicy, spicy wine combining subtle sweetness and soil-driven salinity, with complicating notes of licorice and herbs. Fairly tight but not short on flesh. This serious, well-chiseled village wine will need at least a couple years in bottle to expand.
