Dark in color that right off first opening the wine jumps out with lots of cherries and red berries on the nose. On the mid pallet the wine matches the nose with cherries and lots of red fruits. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely velvety tannins along with some acidity. It’s nice and dry with some nice complexity in the mouth the builds nicely in the mouth. This wine likely has another 2-5 years of life left in it. I would give it an 89-90 all in all given the price this wine is a steal. Grab a bunch and put it in the cellar!
