There’s a strong menthol presence here, illuminated by notes of raspberry, red plum, African violet and dark chocolate. The full mouth avoids feeling fat with excellent acidity and balanced tannins. Pepper and spice unfold amidst red fruit flavors on the palate, followed by a decadent mocha note on the finish. $13. – L.B.
