Polished and well structured, this vibrant, savory red hits all the high notes. It opens with enticing red cherry, pressed rose, ground clove and balsamic scents that follow through to the chiseled palate, along with crushed cranberry and licorice notes. Firm but refined tannins and fresh acidity lend impeccable balance and finesse. Drink 2023–2043.
