Winemaker: Boela Gerber. A gamy note and earthy accents of laurel, thyme, spearmint and licorice are upfront on the bouquet of this wine, supported by a brambly black-fruit core of blackberry and plum. The palate is similarly poised and concentrated, with firm yet fine tannins and oak-influenced flavors of milk chocolate and sweet spice that unfold on the finish. Drinkable now, but should hold well through 2020.
