A superbly balanced selection, this opens with tight, slightly reserved notes of blackberry, plum and boysenberry that are graced with earthy hints of tobacco leaf, licorice and sweet-cured meat. The palate is rich and tasty, yet kept in check by ample, bright acidity and structured tannins. The evolving finish leaves you wanting more. Drink now–2023.
