This darkly colored wine is packed full of intense black raspberry, red currant, espresso bean, cedar, and, dried herb and meats. On the palate the wine shows a bit more red fruit with some nice ripe cherry and red currant. The texture is very silky and refined, which I find quite intriguing considering the ruff and rugged terrain where this wine is made. The finish is full of strawberry rhubarb and red raspberry fruit, combined with a touch of spice, toast, and white pepper.
I really enjoy this wine and was perhaps expecting a bit more power and grit but I'm amazed at the forward fruit and lack of rusticity. I'm not entirely sure how available this wine is, but I would highly recommend seeking it out and purchasing a bottle. It has great finesse, texture, and complexity. 91+ points
