Dark in color with a mild black cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some solid black cherries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely velvety tannins, a hint of sweetness and some nice oaky noes. There’s some lively acidity that lingers nicely in the mouth, and some nice complexity to the wine, to do with the blend. I would give it an 88+. A very nice wine for the money.
