Aromas of mature black-skinned berry, leather, pressed violet, baking spice and a balsamic note slowly emerge on this full-bodied red. The firmly structured palate offers dried black cherry, fig, mocha, tobacco and licorice alongside a backbone of fine-grained tannins. A coffee note closes the finish. Drink through 2022.
