Delicious and loaded with finesse, this offers enticing scents of rose, violet, chopped herb, dark-skinned berry and a whiff of exotic spice. The smooth structured palate delivers juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise, and white pepper alongside polished tannins. Hints of pomegranate and pipe tobacco close the lingering finish. Drink through 2027.
