This wine jumps out of the glass with an aroma profile of strawberry compote and ripe raspberries with nuanced herbs de provence and fresh floral elements throughout. On the palate, these aromas transform into a seamless set of layered flavors which are wrapped around a medium body with round tannins leading toward a fresh and expressive finish. An enjoyable wine now that will age gracefully for another 7-10 years.
