Winemaker's Notes:

A full bodied red wine that appears fresh and concentrated with good balance, complex aromatics, and some depth of flavor. Develops in the glass for some time, and shows its youthful fruit-driven drinkability, and subsequent aging potential as the complexities multiple as the wine opens. A supple mouthfeel and depth of fruit flavor transition to an accentuated finish of bright acidity. Fairly opulent in the front of the mouth, the transition to finish and acidity is fairly smooth. Significant tannins on the finish and prolonged aftertaste increasing as wine continues to breathe and develop.
My Notes:
