Everything about this wine is beautiful and complex, from its crimson red color to its lively fruit and spice. On one end it’s supple and smooth, and on the other it’s hot and spicy. Over a 24 hour period this one stayed intact on the eye, on the nose, and on the palette. Highly recommended.
Sight - Crimson center to ruby red ridge with tight arches
Nose - Ripe red fruit - Strawberry, raspberry, Spice, black pepper
Taste - Ripe up front fruit, strawberry, raspberry, spicy center, black pepper, nice tannins that add a touch of astringency. Very balanced. Long warm, firm finish.
Attack - Intense
Middle - Long
Finish - Strong
Overall - 9.9
