[$29.95] Approachable. Mild fruit, tannins. No Monte Bello, but offers some enjoyment.
Decanted 30 min+. Very nice Bordeaux-esque nose or earth and cherry. Flavors of strawberry on the attack, with some more earthiness and cherries coming into the midpalate, and on into the finish. Ample tannins, which cause some dryness in the mouth. This is still quite smooth and drinking nicely right now.
