Young and showing primary fruit flavors of cranberry and raspberry, this wine isn't shy about incorporating stem and grape skin flavors. It's a style that favors longterm aging over immediate accessibility and will reward decanting and/or cellaring. Drink 2020–2030.

Deep red. A complex bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, candied rose, smoky minerals and black pepper. Juicy, subtly sweet and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, raspberry and floral pastille flavors that turn deeper and spicier as the wine opens up. Closes smoky, juicy and quite long, with youthfully firm tannins contributing grip and focus.
