Wild berry, rose petal, smoke, new leather and alpine-herb aromas make for a delicate bouquet. Focused and savory, the bright, elegant palate delivers cranberry, pomegranate, white pepper and black tea framed in taut refined tannins and bright acidity. A tangy saline note lingers on the close. While some may find this almost too austere, if you love finesse you'll be captivated. Drink through 2027.
