Leather, crushed mint, truffle, pressed violet and menthol aromas come together on the nose of this wine, with a subtle hint of tobacco. The linear palate is juicy and loaded with finesse, offering red cherry, strawberry, white pepper and clove notes held taut and balanced by tightly knit tannins and vibrant acidity.
