This wine is made from mature hillside vines, and shows layered floral and ripe fruit aromas focused on blackberries and damson plums. Its rich palate shows multiple layers of dark fruit with plum,berries and fig intermingled with mocha, slate and hints of dried meat. The wine has a full and smooth palate that displays a linearity and purity of fruit that expresses its mountain fruit sourcing. The finish lingers with fruit freshness and acidity,balanced by soft, graphite-laced tannins. The wine will gain in depth and complexity if decanted at room temperature for 2 or 3 hours before serving.
