Decanted and poured, this wine gave an outstanding showing. The aromatics show a mix of dark berries, licorice, dried herbs and grilled meat notes. The color is a dark ruby to purple that is vibrant, extracted and almost opaque. The medium/full bodied palate shows balance and length with an underlying structure to the youthful fruit notes. Tannins are ample but contained by the fruit components. This wine does an outstanding job of balancing its youthful, accessible fruit with it structure. This wine drinks will now with decanting for its youthful intensity and will benefit from additional bottle age.
