Mature black-skinned fruit, raisin, crushed purple flower and baking spice are some of the aromas you'll find on this bold wine. The chewy full-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, black currant, ground pepper and pipe tobacco alongside firm velvety tannins. An espresso note closes the lingering finish. Drink 2018–2025.
