The nose provides cherry, blackberry and bramble while violet flowers, light tobacco and leather are also prominent. The palate medium to lean. Offering spice with a fine lift of dried cherry as a focus and leafy herb provide shade. The tannin profile somewhat astringent and tight. Partner up to braised beef short rib.
