Enticing aromas of fragrant blue flowers, forest floor and perfumed berry lead the nose on this structured wine. The vibrant palate doles out juicy black cherry and crushed raspberry, while accents of vanilla, mocha and licorice add depth. It's nicely balanced, with fresh acidity and firm yet velvety tannins. Drink 2015–2022.
