Tasting
Tasting notes:

It opens with an elegant bouquet of violet, red berry, spice and a whiff of leather. The delicious palate delivers fleshy black cherry layered with mint, licorice, balsamic herbs and cinnamon-spice. It’s impeccably balanced with firm tannins and fresh acidity that give it an age-worthy structure.
