Fragrant and loaded with finesse, this focused red boasts enticing scents of crushed herb, rose petal, forest floor, woodland berry and a whiff of menthol. It's savory and incredibly elegant, delivering juicy raspberry, strawberry compote and star anise alongside a savory, almost salty note. Lithe polished tannins and bright acidity provide support and impeccable balance. Drink 2022–2032.
