Truffle, flint and wild berry aromas mingle with pipe tobacco and a whiff of new leather on this radiant red. On the savory precise palate, licorice and white pepper underscore a juicy core of red cherry and cranberry alongside a flinty mineral vein. Polished tannins and fresh acidity provide impeccable balance. Drink through 2032.
