Brilliant red. High-pitched red berry, cherry and floral scents, along with hints of musky sassafras and rhubarb. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red currant flavors that deepen and slowly become sweeter with aeration. Shows notable energy and cut and finishes impressively long and spicy, leaving notes of smoky minerals and cherry pit behind. Here's 2013 at its elegant and racy best.
