"Haze of cherry, sweet maraschino cherry, faint fennel, sniff of briar, exotic spice, touch of vanilla bean, but sweet as all that sounds, it’s more amaro sour-sweet than anything. And superb. Such volume of perfume too. Palate has an almost tactile white pepper dusting, feathery and suede tannins build that tactile feel, the wine draws long on an sleek elastic band of juicy, bright cherry fruit, that spice, glossy acidity. It sits in palate even, fine, long, restrained, finessed. Cashmere on the tongue. Far out."
