Aromas of prune, plum cake, graphite and baking spices waft from the glass of this intense, full-bodied wine. The savory palate delivers mature black plum, blueberry extract, white pepper and mocha alongside velvety tannins and fresh acidity. It's surprisingly accessible already but will develop more complexity with aging. Drink through 2022.
