Producer Tasting Notes

The nose is highly expressive with beautiful notes of red and black fruits, a lovely blend of Morello cherry, blueberry, and blackcurrant . Upon agitation, a spicy dimension becomes predominant with hints of cloves, licorice, and eucalyptus, followed by darker and smoky notes with touches of graphite and pencil lead . A superb aromatic complexity very typical of the great soils of Graves . The attack on the palate is straightforward and direct, with a beautiful density and superb texture . The wine is full - bodied, dense with a fine balance of freshness . The tannic structure is present, ripe, with a very beautiful texture and a velvety touch . The palate aromatics reflect those of the nose with a very nice complexity of red fruits, black fruits, spices, as well as nuances of tobacco leaves and eucalyptus .
