Blackberries, black currants, and figs are in intense on the nose and heightened on the palate. Focused sage and cedar highlights at the periphery provide added lift. There’s an appetizing mouthfeel throughout with a lively texture. A hint of tea leaves, slate minerality, and tobacco box at the trailing end merge into an impressive finish.
