Aromas of wild berry, tilled soil, new leather, camphor and a whiff of violet take center stage on the nose. Bright and succulent, the vibrant, graceful palate doles out juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry and baking spice. Taut, refined tannins and racy acidity lend balance and tension. Fans of elegance will love its ethereal finesse. Drink 2019–2026.
