Medium garnet color. Full roses, ripe resinous cherry, caramel, pepper spice and mossy forest laden the nose. After a few minutes it’s almost coffee/toffee in its dark linearity. In the mouth, the wine is elegant and intense dark cherry/pomegranate, short of sweet and shy of bitter. The acidity sings vibrantly, yet just a brush of tannin lays it balanced on the palate.
