Enticingly fragrant, this radiant red has lovely aromas of woodland berry, violet, new leather, aromatic herb and a whiff of pipe tobacco. Firmly structured, the vibrant focused palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, licorice and clove framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2035.
