Intense scents of rose, wisteria, red berry, herbs and baking spices take center stage. The vibrant palate seamlessly weaves together red cherry, black raspberry, cinnamon, clove and mint, with a blast of orange peel on the finish. Velvety tannins make this tempting now but it also shows aging potential. Drink 2020–2040.
