Incredibly fragrant, this presents an alluring bouquet of dark-skinned berry, cake spice, blue flower, underbrush, crushed rock, exotic spice, spirit-soaked berry and balsamic notes. A combination of finesse and strength, it doles out juicy raspberry, Marasca cherry, licorice and baking spice alongside rounded, velvety tannins that give a smooth texture. It's a compelling wine. Drink through 2029.
