Enticing scents of camphor, red berry, rose and new leather lift out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the linear, structured palate delivers raspberry, sour cherry, star anise and menthol alongside tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Firm acidity provides balance. Give it a few more years to unwind and fully develop. Drink 2021–2026.
