Hints of coffee, earth, smoke and spice highlight cool, crisp blackberry and cherry flavors in this wine. It's fragrant and fresh, with a vibrant core of acidity and firm tannins that feel taut and thrilling. While beautiful already, its concentrated fruit and mineral complexities should meld from 2021 and continue to improve through 2030.
