Dark in color with a nice dark berry nose. On the mid palate at first there’s some nice dark berry fruits that start to come through and then you get whacked almost immediately by firm tannins, edgy acidity, some green notes and some strong black pepper. All these flavors linger in the mouth on a long finish, there’s also some strongly noticeable alcohol. This wine is WAY to young. I would say it needs a minimum of 2 years of aging or perhaps you could try decanting or aerating the wine. The fruit that’s there given some aging will come through, but you will need some patience. For now I would give it an 87+ but there’s potential …
The bottle says it’s 34% Cab Sauv, 25% Malbec, 24% Cab franc and 17% Merlot.
