Dark, leathery and deep on the nose with rich aromas of macerated fruits and flowers. Firm on entry and immediately showing a blend of power and polish with dark earthy plum and blackcurrant flavors wedded to a tense, firm yet transparent mouth feel. This is already showing hints of tobacco and dried fruit, adding complexity and nuance on the palate which gains hints of boysenberry, vanilla and nutmeg with air. While complex there’s not tremendous depth to the flavors here which turn black fruited and licorice toned on the firm finish, where the structure here powers on for quite some time. This is a serious wine at the price point and one that should be able to improve in the cellar over the short to mid-term, say 2 to 4 years. May underwhelm some who are looking for more at this price point but this is a terrific wine for the money. 87pts

Smooth red wine, inoffensive, but nothing spectacular either. Good everyday wine. Would buy again. Kick on first sip but mellows out with further drinking.
