Still a baby and therefore rather shy in the glass, a few good swirls eek out aromas of cherry cola, sweet spice and dusty oak. The tannins are big but integrated, with vibrant acidity and herbal, medicinal flavors. This is a rich, powerful style, but give it time and watch it shine. Drink 2019–2032.
