Vibrant red berry, leather, white pepper, clove, violet, turned soil, mint and mineral sensations all come together on this structured but elegant wine. The creamy fruit is brightened by fresh acidity and supported by firm, velvety tannins. Made only in exceptional vintages, it shows a fantastic combination of power and finesse. Drink after 2020.
