Woodland berry, blue flower, sunbaked soil and a whiff of dark spice shape the nose. Structured and extremely elegant, the focused, impeccable palate doles out juicy red cherry, strawberry, baking spice and star anise set against taut polished tannins that provide seamless support. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity. It's already tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2022–2032.
