Opulent and fruit forward with toasty, chocolatey oak framing this medium(+)-bodied and generous offering. Drink very well, but lacks a sincere structure. Sexy and accessible.

Balsamic aromas with mint, cocoa and gravel. Great balance of soft dark fruit, graphite, forest floor and spice..

Decanted an hour. Balanced wine with dark color, good fruit, medium tannins and acidity. Developed more over time. Could age a little longer but approachable now
