Bold nose full of red berries! Medium bodied and dry. Great finish and notes of plumbs, black berries, and dark red cherries.

Concur with Wine Spectator's review, although bumping it up to 88. Indeed, the wine is dominated by a juicy blend of cherry and strawberry--quite pleasing, but contains sufficient tannins to import structural balance. The noted herbs and smoky accents line both the edges and finish, and become more elegantly entwined with a bit of aeration. A cheerful wine that can be consumed alone, or as a compliment with cheese and Italian cuisine.

Very similar to 2014 vintage. Shows greater promise with olive oil based dishes; ripe prune, plush dark berries, and cherry.
