Aromas of underbrush, sea breeze, crushed herb, toast and leather lead the way on this earthy, refined red. On the palate, star anise, clove, grilled sage and a hint of game add depth to the black cherry core. Polished, silky tannins provide the framework while a saline note closes the finish. Drink through 2021.
