A few years has been good for this wine. Dark chocolate, coffee, black fruit and wood spice on the nose. Weighty on the palate with more dark fruit and spice. Fine tannins and nice length to finish. Good balance.
A very nice wine with compost and fruit on the nose. In the mouth, there were soft but noticeable tannins in tandem with rich acidity supporting earthy fruit flavors and a medium finish. Well balanced and food friendly.
