You'll find aromas of forest floor, leather, graphite, chopped mint and an earthy whiff of soil on this elegant red. The structured, medium-bodied palate delivers dark cherry, raspberry compote, star anise, espresso and a toasted note. It's balanced, with firm close-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2019–2028.
