Perfumed notes of tart morello cherry and cassis permeate throughout this lively rousing Spätburgunder. It's buoyant and primary in red fruit, yet tinged by complex intertwining layers of fine, bitter tannin, smoke and savory nuts. It's a powerful wine that calls for cellaring, but should drink beautifully from 2020 until 2025.
