New leather, tilled earth, dark spice, underbrush and a balsamic note mingle together on this compelling red. The full-bodied palate evokes ripe black cherry, licorice, tobacco and crushed herb while youthfully assertive noble tannins provide the framework. Hold for even more complexity. Drink 2023–2036.
