Aromas of baked plum, scorched earth, leather and balsamic notes slowly appear in the glass. On the smooth, full-bodied palate, polished tannins support ripe Marasca cherry, mature blackberry, orange zest and tobacco. It closes on a salty note. It's hitting its peak so enjoy over the next few years. Drink through 2021.
