The nose soars with notes of raspberry jam and strawberry confiture, and is interlaced with Chinese five spice. The leather note typical of Bucher takes a step back in the amazingly complex array of aromas. With air, notes of bitter cherry emerge. In the mouth, the texture is supple and round with flavors of cherry, sassafras, and cinnamon stick. The acid profile is sneaky and seamlessly works with the tannins to a give a finish of bergamot tea. In short, a sensational offering from the Bucher Vineyard.
