A more elegant and cooler nose features essence of red pinot fruit, wet stone, game and violet-scented aromas. There is outstanding mid-palate concentration and power to the driving medium weight plus flavors that display ample minerality on the beautifully balanced and hugely long finish. Note well however that this is a classically constructed Rugiens that will live for decades. In a word, gorgeous.
