Full-bodied and soulful, this entices with fragrances of crushed blue flower, rose petal, pine forest, perfumed berry and notes of tilled soil. The juicy palate offers layers of ripe dark cherry, crushed raspberry, black pepper, leather and cinnamon alongside assertive but fine tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2016–2026.
