This fragrant, refined red opens with alluring scents of blue flower, wild berry, dark spice and a whiff of vineyard dust. The racy, almost ethereal palate offers crushed strawberry, sour cherry, licorice and crushed mint set against vibrant acidity and taut elegant tannins. It's still youthfully austere so don't even attempt it before 2024.
