Aromas of baked plum, mature berry, dark kitchen spice, leather and Mediterranean scrub emerge on this elegantly structured red. The round, smooth palate delivers dried black cherry, fleshy raspberry, licorice and a black pepper note while finely textured tannins provide the framework. Drink through 2019.
