Aromas of underbrush, tobacco leaf, mushroom, black berries, leather and a whiff of truffle lead the nose on this intense wine. On the palate, black cherry, red raspberry, wild mint, sage, white pepper and smoky mineral notes are supported by nervous acidity and bracing, drying tannins. Drink after 2020.
