This offered up sweetly fruited dark cherry notes on the nose that had both traditional notes of asphalt and nettle adding interest as well as top notes of powdered sugar, toast, and milk chocolately oak adding complexity. Very fresh acidity up front with ripe fruit and lots of tannin still to resolve this remains chewy with good, bright fruit on both the mid-palate and finish. The acidity here is solid and adds needed lift to the wine which offers admirable transparency and balance in the mouth. Ending on a bit of a cherry Coke note this is certainly made in a crowd pleasing style and offers up great fruit but lacks nuance and complexity. A solid wine. 2008-2016
