Truffle, moist soil, ground clove leather and balsamic aromas emerge on this along with an earthy whiff of game. The smooth, ripe palate doles out fleshy black cherry, prune, licorice and cured meat alongside polished, velvety tannins. It's already hitting its ideal drinking window so drink sooner rather than later.
