Earthy aromas of leather, truffle, game and ripe black-skinned fruit lead the way on the nose of this smooth, savory red. The structured palate offers juicy black cherry, blackberry, cinnamon and ground white pepper alongside soft, silky tannins. A smoky note bolsters the finish. Drink through 2019.
