Bold and velvety, this offers enticing scents of ripe black cherry, spiced plum, blue flower, baking spice and a whiff of new leather. The luscious yet focused palate delivers juicy blackberry, crushed black raspberry, raisin, licorice and a hint of dark chocolate while firm, velvety-textured tannins provide support. Drink 2018–2029.
