Loaded with energy, this polished red opens with fragrant blue flower, new leather, black plum and baking spice aromas. The juicy, vibrant palate offers tart cherry, cranberry, clove and thyme, its acidity and fine-grained tannins lending grip to the finish. Racy and linear, it needs time to fully develop. Drink 2019–2028.
