This is a very enticing pour, with vibrant herbal streaks of tobacco, leather and dried fynbos that grace the dark fruit core. The medium-weight palate offers a velvety texture and layers of ripe blackberry and cassis flavors. Earthy hits of turned earth and cigar-box spice grace the lingering finish. Drink now–2021.
