Dried leaves and roots, bark, walnut husks and black olives. Plenty of savory notes. Great depth of flavor, too. On the palate there’s more walnut, chocolate, black cherry and olive. It's full bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Wonderful depth here. Drink after 2024.

Blue-flower, baking-spice, new leather and ripe black-skinned berry aromas are front and center on this fragrant, full-boded wine. Polished and elegantly structured, the savory palate features ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon and licorice framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. It's already tempting but give it time to develop even more complexity. Drink 2024–2041.
