This stunning wine opens with a fragrance of strawberry, blue flower, mint and spice. The juicy palate delivers ripe black cherry and balsamic herbs layered with orange peel and hints of vanilla and toast. It has structure and depth balanced by elegant, polished tannins and freshness. Hold for complexity. Drink 2015–2022.
