Elegant and savory, this opens with aromas of crushed herbs, wild berries, forest floor and a whiff of graphite. On the smooth palate, polished tannins support flavors of ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry, exotic spice and a hint of orange zest, with vibrant acidity lending balance. It has fantastic freshness and harmony for the hot vintage. Drink through 2023.
