The nose has a slight mineral essence and freshly plucked garden herbs. Medium-bodied, notes of golden raspberry, baked cherries, Pink Lady, and Gravenstein apple unfold along with other sweet, dark fruit and a touch of black licorice and gamey flavors. Velvety texture with a slight dustiness from French oak barrel aging.
