Engaging aromas of wild berry, new leather, tilled earth and clove slowly take shape in the glass. On the savory medium-bodied palate, bracing but noble tannins underscore a black-cherry core while notes of black olive, anise, Mediterranean herb and earthy game provide the backdrop. It's loaded with personality. Drink 2018–2028.
