Santa Lucia Highlands, California, USA
Highly perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry, candied flowers and allspice pick up a smoky overtone as the wine breathes. Palate-caressing red berry preserve, rose pastille and spice-cake flavours become richer with air while maintaining energy. Finishes on an emphatic red fruit note, displaying excellent clarity, lingering spiciness and smooth tannins.
