The nose is pure enticement, with dark fruit aromas like black plums and blackberries accented with tart dried cherry, mocha and earth. On the palate, the wine is fruit-forward, lifted and lively. The tannins are sheer and smooth as silk in each sip. The flavors are fully ripe and concentrated, but there’s no heaviness, just a great balance and a light touch of oak. Enjoy it slowly and watch it expand and evolve in the glass.
