Tight, tannic with wild strawberry, licorice and violets. Hight acidity, give another couple years. Paired wth salmon and pesto crust. Not good since overpowered food.

14.5% alc suggest chaptalization and concentration with prune and raisony flavors atypical of Va reds and although a good vintage. wonder if any % NON VA grapes. That said a solid red for state and pleasant. no where near finesse of other RdV releases. Nice that profits to wounded warrior cause
