Layered fragrances suggest perfumed berry, orange zest, crushed wild flower, baking spice and tobacco. The smooth, full-bodied palate delivers a great depth of flavors that include creamy cherry, juicy raspberry, thyme, mint, cocoa and energizing mineral. It's superbly balanced with fresh acidity and velvety tannins. Drink 2015–2024.
