Medium red color. The nose has some spice and herbal qualities to it with cherry/strawberry aromas. The palate is medium weight with firm tannins and lively acidity. Interesting finish with good persistence and complexity. This is a nice wine that paired well with rib-eye steak and potatoes. However, it is lacking some depth and power. This will age gracefully for 5 to 7 years but I don't think it will ever be much more than it is today.
