This one has been aging a bit. Great finish; lots of berry.

Dense and intense, Southern Rhone reminiscent. Good acidity. Feels like there is a bit more residual sugar than optimal due to the fruit, but that's not necessarily the case. Still dry enough. Tannins appropriate in their robustness. Satisfying, great value.
