An intense fragrance of exotic incense along with whiffs of violets and perfumed berries take center stage on this elegant but structured wine. The bright palate delivers crushed red cherry alongside sweet cake spices. The silky texture makes this already tempting but give it time to develop. Drink 2020–2040.
