Bright medium ruby. Medicinal scents of kirsch, blackberry, licorice and menthol; the least expressive of these Lydian wines in the context of their varieties. Blackberry and licorice flavors show a faint salinity but need some time to open. Finishes with firm tannic and classic dryness. The least pliant of these Lydian wines, and the most youthful and in need of patience.
