Ripe berry, new leather, dark spice and a balsamic note are some of the aromas you'll find in this full-bodied red. The firm palate offers black cherry, fresh mint and clove set against a backbone of fine-grained tannins that lend polish and structure. It's already impressive but will continue to develop. Drink 2020–2030.
