Review:
Some high-toned elements to the fruit, lavender and stewed plums. Very smooth and gentle on the palate, full-bodied with fine tannins. This has a good sense of harmony, though there is a warming touch on the finish from the alcohol. Full and generous mouthfeel, could do with just a jot more tannin and texture. Lovely sense of saline freshness on the finish though.
