Pungent floral and cherry aromas with a bright mineral tone adding complexity and vibrancy. Sweet concentrated raspberry and cherry flavors show liqueur-like power but with plenty of lift and vivacity. Becomes spicier and deepens with air finishing with a sappy clinging quality and impressive purity.
