Refined and adventurous, sumptuous and velvety, the Genoa XXIII is an exceptional blend that exudes the virtues of each varietal while attaining great balance. The inky red-violet hue is a prelude to the depth and breadth of the brooding flavors. Fragrant with lavender and baking spices, the approach gives way to blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries. Polished tannins and refined acidity enable a full-bodied profile. Hints of forest floor bramble, black cardamom, and dried cranberries trail on the meticulous finish.
