Red wine

Mission Hill, Oculus 2016

Blue flower scents, violet and wisteria, deep set black cherry and plum fruit with a wild herb topnote. Chocolate box characters, cedarwood and warm gravel. The oak component handles the lavish weight of fruit well and brings some spice notes. Tannins are cashmere smooth, bright acidity and beautiful balance.
