The ripening conditions of the 2018 bring out the riper side of this grape variety. Savory notes are supported by licorice and black pepper, as well as ripe plums and a hint of smoke. The wine shows beautiful intensity on the palate. The natural acidity adds freshness to the wine, and tannins are soft and approachable.
