Very nice, big ripe black fruit. Nice tannins to even it out. Some earthiness to give a nice structure.

Rich, dense, yet very smooth and drinkable. Well balanced and full of fruit.

Drinking the 2015 in 2019. Thick long lasting legs. Deep rich purple color. Fruit forward bouquet, rich with raspberry, blackberry and blueberry. Earthy and slightly tannic flavor, with rich stone fruit notes. Very nice wine.
