Wonderful aromas of Mediterranean flowers such as rosemary and lavender with red fruits such as plums and cherries. Full-bodied with firm and polished tannins that are intense and give serious length and focus to the finish. Give this time to soften but a beautiful red already. Try after 2023. ~94 James Suckling
