Dark in color with a nose of black berries and some oaky notes. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice black berries to match the nose along with some velvety smooth tannins and some acidity. I would give it an 88-. Not a bad wine, but not fantastic either. I only bought the one and won’t be rushing back to get more.
