Nice. Rich and plush. Bright nose of mature black fruits. Love the deep coffee notes. Finishes soft and round. No cellaring potential here - drink now.

The nose has deep plum notes. The wine has a smooth mouth feel not quite velvet. The wine is not overly complex but is a smooth pleasure to drink. The wine finishes with a sweet over ripe plum. The one knock on this wine is the utter lack of oak, it’s almost nonexistent.
