Multifaceted aromas of ripe plum, bright red berry, leather and underbrush jump from the glass. The intense palate delivers crushed red cherry alongside notes of black pepper, clove, sage, mint, licorice and balsamic notes. It has great energy thanks to brisk acidity and decisive tannins. Drink 2020–2040.
