Inky dark in color with a lovely nose of dark berries. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely rich blackberries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some acidity, alcohol and tannins. They ease nicely leaving a smooth finish. The wine is a bit young and tight. I would give it a solid 89. Which for the price is a great deal. A little bit of breathing or aging and you will be rewarded!
