Red berry, tilled soil, leather, aromatic herb and clove aromas slowly take shape in the glass, together with a balsamic note. The bright, elegantly structured palate doles out layers of black raspberry, ripe black cherry, white pepper and licorice while firm, refined tannins provide the framework. It's subtle and loaded with finesse. Drink 2017–2022.
