Iris, rose, menthol and woodland berry aromas come to the forefront. On the succulent vital palate, taut, refined tannins and vibrant acidity provide seamless support for juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and white pepper. It's loaded with finesse, and will develop even more complexity with more bottle age. Drink 2022–2028.
