Beautiful aromas of fragrant blue flower, rose, perfumed berry and dark spice form the nose. Juicy and elegantly structured, the savory focused palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and a hint of tobacco. Taut polished tannins provide the framework while fresh acidity lends balance. Drink 2022–2035.
