Deep garnet-purple in color, with a nose that is slightly closed at this youthful stage—broody and earthy with baked plums and mulberries aromas plus touches of iron ore, tobacco, tapenade and charcuterie. The palate is medium-bodied and elegant with exquisitely ripe tannins, lovely energy and freshness and a long, mineral-laced finish. Good to match beef and lamb.
