Intriguing aromas of forest floor, dark berry, new leather and crushed herb lead the nose of this wine. The savory, firm palate offers succulent Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper flavors, with refined tannins and a backbone of firm acidity. A smoky note closes the finish.
