On the nose, a dense perfume of violet, blueberry, anise, with blood orange wafts out of the glass. Hints of iron and graphite preface the firm structure of the wine. The 60% stem-inclusion lifts the aromatic profile lending attractive smells of fresh cut herbs. The wine coats the mouth and is intensely vibrant, young, and aggressive. Poignant red fruit flavors are tamed by the luxurious mouth-feel. This wine screams for red meat. A powerful, integrated wine, already intensely enjoyable.
