Exotic spice, pressed violet and woodland-berry aromas create an inviting bouquet. The linear elegant palate delivers tart cherry, strawberry, licorice and white pepper while bright acidity and firm refined tannins provide balance and support. A note of orange zest closes the finish. It's still young so give it time to fully blossom. Drink 2019–2028.
