Senses are rocked to the bone as rider and earth are connected over ancient roads. Just like a precious ruby, this wine is bright and luminous. The body is luscious and full, held together passionately by tannins that are both elegant and well structured. On the palate there is an explosion of dark cherry and cranberry balanced by palpable hints of damp straw earthiness and wet cobble stone minerality that are typical of this varietal. Vanilla bean and rocky road ice cream are predominant on the nose.
