Review

Bright purple. Aromas of cassis, cherry compote and mocha, accented by a floral topnote. Sappy and expansive, offering intense dark berry flavors sharpened by zesty acidity. Fine-grained tannins arrive late and add shape to the energetic, appealingly sweet finish. I find this wine drinkable now but have no doubt that it will age gracefully.
