Rich black cherry aromas come up from the glass. On the palate, cherry gives way to raspberry, then pomegranate, with a background of roses and lavender. Tannins are structured, acids racy. This runs through a whole palate of red fruits, with great florals and firm structure. Drink with clay oven roasted lamb. Recommended. 88 points. DBH
