Aromas of mature dark-skinned berry, toasted hazelnut, espresso, menthol and oak-driven spice meld together in the glass. The concentrated, full-bodied palate boasts succulent black cherry, raspberry jam, licorice, vanilla and sage framed in velvety tannins that give this a polished texture. Drink 2018–2027.
