It offers compelling fragrances of rose, violet, leather, woodland berries and herbs, with balsamic accents. The savory palate delivers crushed Morello cherry, raspberry, mint, vanilla and espresso with a blast of orange zest on the finish. It's young but already elegant and balanced. Drink after 2018.
