Smoke, gamey, sage, and dark cherry. Steady tannins and acidity, but not too heavy. Very interesting representation.

Just ok, oak is not well integrated, fruit concentration slightly lacking.

Excellent, balanced red blend. Cherry notes on the nose, medium-high tannin, closes with tobacco and roasted almonds. Great value too! (19$@ LCBO).
