right red. Highly perfumed red berry, cherry cola and floral scents, along with a smoky mineral flourish that builds in the glass. Sweet and energetic on the palate, offering raspberry, spicecake and smoky mineral flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Finishes long, smooth and floral; slow-building tannins add framework and gentle grip.
