Delicate aromas of ripe berry, tilled soil, rose petals and white pepper waft out of the glass. The palate is still a bit shy but extremely elegant, revealing bright wild cherry, orange peel and cinnamon perfectly balanced with youthfully bracing tannins and nervous acidity that need time to soften. Drink after 2020.
