Ethereal aromas of wild berry, rose petal, dark spice and a light balsamic note swirl around the glass. The juicy elegantly structured palate delivers black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and a hint of cinnamon framed in bright acidity and tightly knit but refined tannins. It's already approachable but will be even better in 2019.
