Aromas of red berry unite with whiffs of Mediterranean scrub, blue flower and exotic spice. Reflecting the nose, the elegantly structured, focused palate delivers juicy red cherry, strawberry, star anise and baking spice accompanied by firm, polished tannins. Bright acidity lends balance. Drink 2022–2031.
