Bright red cherry and strawberry pop right off the top (underscored by a hint of brine), riding a tangy, springy wave of acidity. Black pepper, oak, and pleasing tannins peek through mid-palate. Pleasant, subtle florals on the finish.
Nice wine, will not reside in my top 10, but enjoyable. A little tart, with a nice fruity (cranberry?) top note, and balanced tannins. Very drinkable.
