Spicy red berries potpourri and minerals on the nose; this smells awfully fresh. Bright palate-staining raspberry and blackcurrant flavors possess excellent concentration and are leavened by zesty minerality. Finishes smooth and silky with echoing raspberry and floral qualities. This is complex enough to enjoy right now.

An elegant long pure medium to full-bodied effort it is a faithful representation of its Mediterranean blend. Consume it over the next decade.
