Soft nose. Black rolling fruit elegant soft tannins. Rich milk chocolate Perfect acidity.Still a little bit tight. Will definitely benefit from a few years in the bottle.

I shared this amazing gem with my friend on her birthday in front of the vino Bello at the onset of Covid isolation. This wine delivered (as it should for the price) on all fronts. Med + body and acid. Tannins were so smooth and integrated they just wrapped your tongue in velvet. Ripe berries on the nose and palate intermingle with soft lilac and a hint of herbaceousness. Nice long finish. The only thing wrong was we didn't have a second bottle because the one went down so easy.
