Jammy jam! Very accessible at a young age, fruit is quite generous.

Tried this wine at a high end tasting at Tinto. Brought a few bottles home. Broke out the Coravin to enjoy a full glass. This is a big boy and just my style. First impression is that it will definitely refine with some age but there is so to appreciate right now. Definitely recommend decanting an hour or more before drinking. Without decanting I am getting tobacco, leather, cigar box, black currant, blueberry, vanilla, and smoke. Nice structure and balance.

Needed to open up, but really nice flavor paired with a cheese plate.
