Intensely fragrant, this opens with heady aromas of perfumed violet, truffle, new leather, crushed herb and wild berry. Chewy and enveloping, the full-bodied palate doles out succulent wild cherry, ripe raspberry, licorice and cake spice while big velvety tannins lend structure and polish. Drink through 2025.
