A seductive and perfumed nose with red cherries and Satsuma plums combining with violets, lavender and bay leaf. Beneath, subtle notes of star anise, cinnamon quill and nutmeg offer complexity. Delicate with gentle layers and powdery tannins, the palate has vibrancy, displaying a red fruit spectrum. Bright acidity creates a defined line through the palate. Cracked coffee bean and cacao are present on the mid palate, along with a graphite/mineral thread.
