This takes some air and ideally some time to slowly unfurl, but the patience is rewarded with an aromatic onslaught of raspberries, pastille, woody herbs, boysenberry, licorice and crème de violette. The palate is fresh and vibrant and has an energy that is compelling. Finishes with a delicous amaro-quality that has become synonymous with this site. A tightly wound, interwoven fist-full of wine that releases a vitality and energy that makes this far more serious than the nose would have you believe initially. The tannins are ultra fine and sandy and finish the wine with a savory lick.
