Earthy and delicious, this soulful red opens with aromas of sun-baked soil, leather, ripe black fruit, dark spice and a funky but pleasant whiff of game. The round, smooth tastes of juicy blackberry, wild cherry, cinnamon, black olive, cured meat and mineral framed in silky tannins. It's already enjoyable, with depth and balance but it will age well for another decade or more. Drink through 2026.
