Violet, perfumed berry, forest floor, grilled herb and anisette aromas jump out of the glass of this vibrant wine. The focused palate offers crushed wild cherry and black raspberry along with accents of white pepper, cinnamon, licorice and mint. It's balanced with brisk acidity and firm but refined tannins. Drink 2020–2030.
