Rose, violet, red-berry and baking-spice aromas mingle with a whiff of menthol on this compelling gorgeous red. The vibrant full-bodied palate is all about flair and finesse, delivering crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and a hint of tobacco framed in taut fine-grained tannins. Young and intense, it will be ideal after a few more years of aging but will continue to develop for decades. Drink 2023–2040.
