A tsunami of aromatics! The 2018 Kashmir rushes from the glass with mineral laden fruit aromas of blackberries, black raspberries, currants and ripe strawberries. Effusive notes of violets, roasted almonds, black cardamom, crushed rocks, mocha and new suede add a heady elegance. Stratified flavors of black and purple fruits are framed by super supple and satisfying tannins resulting in an echoing display of power, balance and elegance through to the last sip and beyond. While this wine will cellar well for decades, it’s difficult to resist drinking now.
