This is always a beautiful wine to make. Vibrant, fresh styling from a blend of vineyards that add complexity from soil rather than any winemaking artifact. It has bright and dark edges that interplay. Lifted cherry and campari, red/blue fruits and earthy aromas with a juicy, lively mouthfeel and firm tannin.
