Blue flower, rose, ripe red berry, spice, balsam and leather are some of the aromas that emerge. The palate delivers succulent red cherry layered with toast, espresso, oak, licorice and black pepper. It's still on its oak but thanks to the rich fruit, this should come together nicely. Drink after 2020.
