This is a dark and brooding wine. Aromas of blackberry jam, cedar, with a hit of cardamom. Plum entry that opens up into a mouthful of black cherry Jolly Ranchers and other dark fruits. Tannins start gracefully enough and become dusty and pronounced towards the finish. Thereís a considerable amount of lush, sweet fruits in the midpalate that carries well into the finish thanks to a thread of acidity. This is a classic steak wine. It has the depth of flavors to bring out the best in a ribeye while cutting through the fat.
