(2010 Vintage) A fleshy, attractive, up-front style of wine with plenty of sweet cherry and black currant fruit along with a hint of licorice, this wine is pure, medium-bodied and very fresh, with surprisingly low acidity.
deep ruby, rim show a bit of granite nose: medium+ intensity, developed, strong dark chocolate and leather palate: dark chocolate, leather, savory, mineral, cedar, very powerful, medium acidity, strong tannin, very structure and balanced wine. can drink now, may keep one more year
