Aromas of underbrush, camphor, new leather and forest berry form the nose. It's full bodied and firmly structured, offering Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and a hint of exotic incense. Youthfully assertive but noble tannins and vibrant acidity provide the ageworthy backbone. Drink 2025–2035.
