As the minutes pass, a far greater complexity of intense black fruit is revealed, with hints of black cherries, blueberries, and blackcurrants as well as a touch of cloves, cigar box, and a refreshing streak of eucalyptus. As the wine opens, the oaky layers recede, allowing the abundant fruit to take center stage. After four hours from opening, an enchanting floral note appears, together with a hint of strawberry.
