This wine opens with aromas of wild cherry marinated in spirits, leather and dark chocolate. The palate offers juicy black cherry accented with white pepper, cinnamon and eucalyptus alongside round but fleeting tannins. It's delicious but already extremely accessible so don't leave this in the cellar for too long. Drink through 2019.
