A 100% varietal wine that opens invitingly in wafts of baked bread and follows on the palate with juicy black currant and dried herb, this shows complexity and elegance in equal measure. Firm tannin girds substantial characteristics of black licorice and tobacco, with a succulent finish. Drink now through 2023.
