Lifted aromas of crushed mint, menthol, underbrush and crushed berry are front and center on this impressive wine. It's still young but already shows impeccable pedigree, delivering raspberry compote, juicy Marasca cherry, licorice and clove while assertive but refined tannins and fresh acidity provide balance and an age-worthy structure. Drink 2025–2038.
