Aromas of ripe black berry, Alpine herbs, graphite, smoke and a leather note mingle in the glass. The round, savory palate delivers layers of wild cherry, raspberry, cinnamon-spice, mint and mineral alongside polished tannins. It's already accessible, but will hold for another five years at least. Drink through 2020.
