Aromas recall black berries, violets, leather, toasted notes, baking spices and subtle oak. The juicy palate delivers Morello cherry accented with notes of fig, cracked black pepper, balsamic herbs and licorice. The delicious fruit is supported by a seriously tannic backbone and bright acidity. Drink after 2018.
