Licorice, clove, new leather and tobacco aromas mingle with rose, chopped herb and woodland berry. Structured and savory, the vibrant, precise palate shows juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry, star anise and menthol alongside youthfully assertive but elegant tannins. An iron note lingers on the close. Drink 2023–2038.
