"Bright purple hue; a lifted and highly aromatic wine, with lots of spice permeating the generous palate of red and black fruits; very long, fine and quite silky with ample fruit and a vivacious finish."

"There's tension between the sweet red berry flavors of this wine and the more savory, beefy, sanguine side. Ripe, wild strawberry flavors persist through the finish along with suave tannins that have the scent of pencil lead.
