Menthol, eucalyptus, violet, berry, clove and sage aromas all meld together on this savory wine. The bright, succulent palate delivers dense black cherry and crushed raspberry accented with mocha, cinnamon and vanilla alongside a backbone of brisk acidity and fine tannins. It's tempting now but will be even better after 2018.
