Boasting a deep crimson hue, fresh and ripe aromatics of red delicious apples, black cherries and blueberry compote are immediately apparent. In the background, denser notes of salt caramel, beef carpaccio and balsa wood intermingle with high toned components of rose water, orange oil, toasted nori and lavender. The palate impression is tender and polished with a firm presence finishing with significant weight and focus.
