Leather, truffle, grilled herb, purple flower and perfumed berry aromas take shape in this fragrant red. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, delivering red cherry, cranberry, cinnamon and clove flavors while nervous acidity and youthfully assertive, refined tannins provide support and balance. A star anise note wraps up the finish. Drink 2022–2034.
