Rich and concentrated, this opens with aromas of black plum, tobacco and Mediterranean herb. The round palate doles out crushed blackberry, black currant, cracked pepper and sage alongside velvety tannins that gives it a smooth mouthfeel. A graphite note closes the lingering finish. Enjoy through 2020.
