Truffle, underbrush, new leather, wild berry and violet aromas are front and center on this gorgeous, full-bodied red. The taut, vibrant palate combines power and grace, delivering crushed red cherry, cranberry, white pepper and tobacco. It's young but impeccably balanced, with firm noble tannins and bright acidity. Hold to give it time to fully develop. Drink 2023–2043.
