Opening with aromatics of exotic blossoms and fresh red fruits. The palate shines with a refreshing and stimulating body of rose and violet cream, red and purple fruits, and glittering spice threads. Vibrant acidity pairs with supple, ultra fine tannin bringing wonderful freshness, still rich flavor and the structure to age. Delicious.
