This leads with a beautiful fragrance of red rose, iris, red berry, leather, grilled herb and a whiff of cinnamon. The delicious palate delivers succulent black cherry, ripe raspberry, white pepper and a hint of orange zest alongside assertive but velvety tannins. Give it time to unwind and develop complexity. Drink 2016–2026.
