Ripe, red-toned fruit aromas lead with strident strawberry, Loganberry and raspberry supported with cardamom, dried rose and green herbalaccents. Soft entry on the palate with medium tannins and juicy acid. Flavors mirror the aroma and transition to a medium length finish with balanced acid. 19% new French oak adds complexity without distracting from the forward fruit. A more elegant style of Grand Assemblage than previous vintages that’s ready to drink sooner as result.
