Full of bright red fruit, cherry and raspberry, from the outset. Moves through darker fruit, currant and cassis, to black cherry and just a bit of blackberry. Hints of woody herbs and undergrowth waft along the edges. Aromas of leather and tobacco are just starting to make their appearance. Grippy tannin and bracing acidity show off blackberry and blueberry flavors. Cedar, cinnamon and oak spice linger on the finish.
