Superb at every checkpoint, this is a world-class wine. Cherry, cassis and earth aromas are spicy and mellow, not bullish or loud. This feels creamy but with enough textural grit to keep things lively, while flavours of vanilla, tobacco and plum are nicely integrated. A mild, medium-long finish epitomizes elegance.
