Aromas of crushed roses, violet, tilled earth, forest floor, leather and balsamic notes all come together. The palate delivers juicy black cherry accented with thyme, white pepper, mocha and subtle oak. It's still young, with brisk acidity and compact tannins but already shows finesse and balance. Drink after 2020.
