Fragrant and refined, this wine is all about finesse and balance. It's perfumed with blue flower, rose petal, woodland berry, pine, spice and balsamic notes. The palate offers layers of black cherry, juicy raspberry, licorice and spice alongside firm but polished tannins. It's still primary but already has great depth and will develop more complexity over the next decade. Drink 2018–2030.
