Initially somewhat closed on the nose, but swirl the glass and you’ll find resiny scents with hints of citrus, mineral, a whiff of new leather, and, eventually, some fruit as well — suggestive of dark cherries. Palate offers veiled fruit overlaid with light tannins. Fairly soft and round at the present, but with increasing acidity on the finish. A light, delicate, quiet wine that will need time to come out of its shell.
Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken dishes; rabbit or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes
