Pretty aromas of red currant and black cherry mingle with black fruits with a touch earthy, cured meat aromas that frame the wild berry flavors and toasty oak on the palate. The wine shows polish with a good balance between acidity and round and ripe flavors. Finishes with moderate, well-integrated tannins. Delicious and supple now, it will continue to improve for several more years to come.
