Dark in color with a mild nose of red berries and oak. On the mid palate the wine displays lovely rich bold dark cherries. On the med length finish the wine displays noticeable alcohol and firm acidity and tannins. I think the wine is a little young. It’s quite firm. I would give it an 88 or so. Age or decant and it will be lovely.
