Sleek and modern, but very well crafted…”

Medium garnet red with bricking on the edges. Layered nose developing some secondary characteristics with leaves, dried cigar box, dried cherries, spices and some dark berries. Medium and smooth tannins (6.5/10) with a full body. Elegant and feminine start with floral characteristics, dark spices and dried black cherries. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2026.

Thin but thick-skinned wisdom. Balance with soft blooms of plum.
