Earthy aromas of wild berry, underbrush, leather and a whiff of game follow over to the youthfully austere palate along pomegranate, star anise and clove. Taut tannins and vibrant acidity provide the backbone. Racy, focused and a bit on the lean side, this needs time to unwind and fully open. Drink after 2023.
