New leather, wild berry, violet, white pepper and dark spice aromas come together in the glass. The elegantly structured savory palate offers a nice depth of flavors including ripe morello cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and clove. Tightly wound refined tannins provide the firm polished framework. Drink 2018–2028.
