Aromas of exotic spice, rose, red berry, tobacco and a whiff of French oak mingle together in the glass. The aromas carry over to the elegant, firmly structured palate, along with strawberry, morello cherry and licorice. Firm, fine-grained tannins provide refined support, while a coffee note wraps up the lingering finish. Give this a few more years to unwind and fully develop; drink 2023–2038.
