A fantastic nose laden with black cherry, aspen leaves, sous bois, and the most beautiful violets you could imagine. The mouthfeel is certainly satin, ending things off with an almost menthol, gentian root note. Give this wine some time to open up in a decanter or your cellar, sure, but don't let that discourage you from drinking this beauty tonight.
