A kaleidoscope of aromas greets you - rhubarb pie, toasted sagebrush, pomegranate, sun-dried tomatoes, lavender and sweet cherries. The impressive palate brings forth tart cherry, black fruits, plum and cranberry. There is a definite herbal edge (think bay leaf) that shifts towards sweeter spice notes: anise, sandalwood and peppercorns. A silky mouthfeel and a light, pleasant tannic grip leaves you wanting to enjoy glass after glass. Cellar 2025-2027.
