Enticing aromas of wild berry, pressed rose, cake spice and chewing tobacco come together on this gorgeous wine. The firmly structured palate delivers juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, licorice and clove. It's well balanced, with ripe, velvety tannins that will make it approachable earlier than other vintages but still age-worthy. Drink 2019–2036.
