Graphite, grilled herb, toast and leather aromas emerge together with a balsamic note. Showing structure and finesse, the full-bodied palate delivers mature black cherry, raspberry, licorice, coffee, toasted oak and a hint of Asian spice. Firm, fine-grained tannins grip the finish. Drink 2020–2029.
