Spicy, floral notes of cardamom and dried rose are supported by red-fruited
raspberry, pomegranate and dried cherry. An integrated 29% new French oak
adds layers of interesting vanilla, nutmeg and cocoa. The palate exhibits classic Quailhurst weight with medium tannins and balanced acidity. Flavors are
similar to the aroma with added hints of spiced cherry, hibiscus, strawberry
and cranberry. The vibrancy of the mid-palate and finish show how wines
from the 2018 vintage will stay youthful and bright longer than those from years with warmer harvests.
