Rich. Powerful. A special wine. 2017. Charming red fruit. Bit tannic. Needs air

Slight oxidation on the nose, evidenced by some port cella ring in the cork, however it still holds it own - on the palate it is well balanced between the wood and fruit - tannins are open and ready to drink - if storage had been better it would be interesting to have seen what this was like.
But I enjoy it never-the-less and looking forward to having it with my veal chop :)

Dark ruby coloration. Some translucency. On the nose, cherry, strawberry, florals, and minerals. On the palate, cherry, strawberry, florals, mint, leather, minerals. The finish is medium in length. Tannins are still strong. Medium- full body.
