its just a great wine
Deep in color with a rich finish, hints of pepper, blackberry, and oak. Very smooth a very complete wine for its price point. Would recommend
Very strong spice upfront at the nose with some raspberry at the back of the nose. A bit of tobacco and graphite at the nose after a few more sniff. Smooth in the mouth with a solid tannin at the back of the jaw. There is some structure to the wine and it finishes longer than anticipated. Very spicy and enjoyable, but that's personal preference. Could spend a few more years in the cellar for it to fully mature, but can also be enjoyed now while young.
