Alluring scents of dried rose, forest floor, crushed herb, woodland berry and dark spice come together on this fragrant red. The elegantly structured, focused palate delivers red cherry, crushed strawberry and star anise while a savory, almost salty mineral note lingers on the close. It's balanced, and still young, with youthfully taut, polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2022–2035.
