The nose opens to dark fruits of plum, black cherry, and cassis married with an earthy essence of mushroom. With time these will make way to notes of baking spices and cedar. The palate is full, with a generous mouthfeel, showcasing layers of plum, blueberry, blackberry, and toasted almonds, while spiced with cola, tobacco, and mint. The harmonizing acidity provides lift and a refreshing counterbalance to the chalky Coombsville tannins. This wine will retain its vibrancy as it ages, while developing deeper layers and expanding into a more velvety palate, and rewarding patience with a beautiful, earthy bouquet.
