2015 Coffin Ridge Back from the dead red

Inky dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with nice dark berries along with some nice oaky notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some some nice smooth tannins and acidity along with some light mocha, rustic notes and some nice dryness. I would give it a solid 88.
