This elegant wine opens with a spicy fragrance of white pepper, clove and nutmeg along with notes of violet and forest floor. The palate offers crushed red cherry and raspberry accented with allspice and cinnamon alongside silky tannins. This is already accessible but will also age well over the next decade. Drink 2015–2025.
