Enticing scents of wild berry, rose, baking spice and balsamic aromas come together in the glass. Juicy yet full in body, the flavorsome palate shows succulent Morello cherry, cranberry, licorice and ground white pepper alongside a backbone of vibrant acidity and firm, polished tannins. It's already exceptional, but will benefit from more aging. Drink 2020–2038.
