Perfumed with layers of violet, rose, leather, ripe black fruit, thyme and mint sensations, this structured yet graceful wine shows youthful tension and energy. The delicious palate delivers crushed black cherry, black pepper, cinnamon, mocha, black tea and tobacco alongside smooth, velvety tannins. Give it time to develop fully. Drink 2018–2038.
