Blueberry & leather aroma w/hint of sage. Jammy blueberry w/sage, rosemary & hints of oak. Tannins muted but still drys your mouth a little on the medium finish. Nice with spaghetti & a mild tomato sauce.
appearance: dark purple to maroon. Pretty dense, but not totally inky aroma: flowery with some dark berry hints. Black licorice. Some oak. Subtle leather. mouthfeel: medium and pretty silky. Tannins are firm, but in check. No salient alcohol. Good balance. flavor: subtle berry in the attack transitions to a good balance of fruits and vegetables on the mid palate with a slightly spicy green pepper finish. Very interesting.
Nice wine! Tried it first with some pasta and simple red sauce, the garlic in which overwhelmed the wine. Consumed on its own, it's very nice, but more mild-mannered than I expected. (89-90)
