Aromas of dark-skinned berry, French oak, clove and a whiff of aromatic herb lift out of the glass. The structured palate offers black cherry, cinnamon, licorice, menthol and chopped mint alongside vibrant acidity and youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins that grip the finish. Give this time to fully develop and unwind. Drink 2020–2029.
