This gorgeous red opens with classic aromas of forest floor, wild berry, crushed herb, blue flower and a whiff of menthol. It's all about structure and finesse, delivering succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice, baking spice and crushed mint flavors. Bright acidity and firm, polished tannins give it wonderful balance and a smooth texture. Drink 2022–2034.
