Dark in color with a nose of dark berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays dark berries to match the nose. ON the medium length finish the wine displays some nice complexity and some nice dryness along with some smooooth tannins. I would give the wine a solid 89-90. Very nice!

Tasting Note
Dark and extracted, this has firm, dry tannins. It’s hard edged, but the potential of the black currant fruit is apparent. Give this structured wine at least five years for the rich fruit to surface. Score – 89. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, March 2013)
