$35

Dark cherry and plum paste flavors roll through slowly in this red, which is lined with light violet, lavender and wood spice accents. There’s a noticeable peppery note lurking in the background, along with some bay leaf, cedar and worn leather hints. This may not be the purest expression, but old-school fans will support it. Best from 2022 through 2030. 5,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
