On the nose, this wine exudes rich and ripe aromas of bramble, wild raspberry, black cherry and scorched earth with notes of lavender, dried rose petals, sage, bay laurel, loam and bittersweet chocolate. On the palate, its velvety, supple texture supports ripe avors of sweet plum and black cherry with notes of fresh-turned earth and vanilla bean, followed by a persistent nish evocative of broken stones. Notes winemaker Nigel Kinsman: "This wine’s super-fine-grained tannins provide a framework for the luscious fruit intensity and lingering minerality in the nish. It exhibits amazing focus and poise."
