    Deep, rich and autumnal, the 2016 Perricone Njuro mixes exotic brown spice with black currants, clove, licorice and fresh mint. This is velvety in texture yet lifted in feel, with saturating notes of raspberry and tart cherries excited by bracing acidity. Youthfully dense and poised, the Njuro isn’t quite ready to show all of its charms, finishing with grippy tannins under a violet-tinged air of berries and sweet minerals. Choosing between this and the sultry 2015 tasted alongside it is like splitting hairs; ultimately, the 2016 is the long-distance runner of the pair.
