Ripe berry, aromatic herb, rose, violet, anise, leather and a whiff of tobacco all meld together on this firmly structured wine. The full-bodied, gripping palate delivers mature black cherry, licorice, underbrush and dark baking spice alongside youthfully assertive but velvety-textured tannins. Drink 2019–2029.
