Dried rose petal, underbrush, leather, and a balsamic note are just some of the scents you'll find on this firm, well-structured red. On the palate, licorice, clove and crushed herb accent the core of crushed black cherry while velvety tannins and fresh acidity provide the framework. Drink 2018–2028.
