Earthy aromas of truffle, leather, tilled soil, Mediterranean herb and a hint of cured meat slowly take shape in the glass. The aromas carry over to the concentrated palate along with steeped plum, fleshy wild cherry, licorice, tobacco and a hint of game. Firm tannins and fresh acidity provide an age-worthy framework. Drink 2020–2027.
