Wine Description

Good deep red-ruby. Sappy, primary black fruit and mineral aromas, with hints of violet and licorice. Lush, opulent and suave, but with noteworthy energy in the mouth, thanks to brisk, harmonious acidity. Very long and firm on the back end, with the wine's tannins currently covered by sappy fruit.
