  • Tasting Notes

    Ripe and perfumed aromas of red and black cherries, currants, and raspberries. High-toned floral notes of rose petals and violets, as well as subtle baking-spice notes, are layered in as well. Medium-bodied and refreshingly lively and persistent on the palate with a deceptive structure.
