This fragrant red opens with scents suggesting aromatic Alpine herb, ripe dark-skinned berry, flint and a whiff of exotic spice. The luminous, elegantly structured palate displays ripe wild cherry, raspberry, mineral and a hint of star anise alongside a backbone of firm, refined tannins. Drink through 2024.
