Red berry, rose, blue flower, tilled soil and Alpine herb aromas set the pace on this luminous red. The firm palate is still young and closed but already shows ripe red berry, wild cherry, mocha anise, clove and a hint of toast. Youthfully assertive but refined tannins and fresh acidity lend structure and balance. Drink 2019–2029.
