Inviting aromas of dark-skinned berry, pipe tobacco, cassis and cedar lead the way on this smooth, full-bodied, savory red. The concentrated balanced palate doles out ripe black currant, raspberry jam, nutmeg and pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2029.
Plush and juicy, with a mouthful of ripe strawberry and wild cherry fruit complemented by accents of licorice drop, espresso bean, smoky mineral and herb and spice, this is well-balanced and medium-bodied. Drink now through 2020.
