Medium ruby in color with beautiful saturation in the glass. A bright and perfumed nose highlights fresh cherries, rhubarb and floral notes of lilac and a hint of earthiness. The palate is full but remains restrained with the flavors replicating those found in the nose. The finish is plush and nicely textured, but it possesses enough tannin to permit additional aging. While this wine drinks well now, 5 - 7 years of additional aging will reward a wine of even greater depth and complexity.
