This bold, beautiful wine opens with earthy aromas of freshly tilled soil, violets, truffle and leather. The delicious palate offers succulent blackberry, woodland berry and cinnamon-spice accompanied by big, brooding tannins. It's already stunning, but give this terroir-driven wine time to develop even more complexity. Drink 2015–2024.
