Really nice aroma. Lush fruit flavor, a short oaky aftertaste.

Medium garnet color with light cherry and black pepper aromas. Medium sweet with low acidity, medium body and finish. Meat, orange and a little oak flavor. Unusually spicy finish that just stays on will fruits have dissipated. Acceptable but not transcending.

Very young. Needs couple more years of aging to mature. Very very tart on the palate.

Aerated this bottle, it opens up well for a $9 bottle of wine. Heavy dark berries(blackberry). Solid warm weather red.

Very fruity, particularly blackberries. Easy to drink, not very dry without being overly sweet.

Woody aroma. Dark purple color. Heavy on the tannins with a long-lingering spice.
