This offers intriguing aromas of chopped mint, menthol, leather, soil and spiced berry. The mint note carries over to the chewy palate, along with soothing licorice, clove and tobacco, all of which add depth to the core of juicy black cherry. Velvety tannins lend structure and polish. It's already accessible and will make wonderful imbibing over the next several years. Drink through 2025.
