Scorched soil, underbrush, pressed violet, oak, ripe berry and cured meat aromas lead the way along with a whiff of menthol. The bold, structured palate offers black raspberry jam, mature wild cherry, baking spice, toast and dried herb framed in assertive, tightly woven tannins. Give this time to unfold and develop fully. Drink 2020–2030.
