Underbrush, leather, dark spice and menthol aromas shape the nose on this radiant red along with forest berry. The vibrant chiseled palate mirrors the nose, evoking wild strawberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and chopped mint. Firm polished tannins and bright acidity lend balance and tension. It's a stunning wine, loaded with class and finesse. Drink 2023–2038.
