Juicy and savory, this boasts aromas of baked cherry pie, dried rose, leather, dark baking spice and a whiff of menthol. The rich, chewy palate offers juicy black cherry, orange zest, crushed strawberry, white pepper and cinnamon alongside big, ripe tannins and surprisingly fresh acidity for the hot vintage. Drink through 2026.
