Smoke, crushed stone, underbrush, aromatic herb and wild berry aromas lift out of the glass. Structured, focused and loaded with finesse, the savory palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice, ground pepper and a flinty mineral note alongside taut, refined tannins. It's balanced, with bright acidity. It already has a great depth of flavors but will develop even more complexity over the next several years. Drink through 2026.
