"The core flavors of strawberry and raspberry are shaded by eucalyptus, leather and tobacco notes. Reveals an element of sweet spices as this plays out gracefully on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2040."

"EDITOR'S CHOICE. Rose, woodland berry, chopped herb and a whiff of smoke lead the nose. Reflecting the aromas, the smooth full-bodied palate delivers crushed morello cherry, orange zest, star anise and a hint of game while fine-grained tannins lend polished support. Drink 2023–2030."
