Tasting Notes: With a floral nose of violet and blue fruits, the wine leads into a brambly, chalky palate with hints of pomegranate, chocolate, and baking spice. Marked by supple tannins and a velvety mouthfeel, it is well-integrated and complete, thanks to the extended barrel aging.
Winemaking: Native yeast. 100% destemmed. Punched down twice per day for gentle extraction. Barrel aged for 30 months in 10% new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered.
