A touch roasted and fiery on the nose, with a lot of earth and wood-based spice. The palate runs toward tart and snappy, with cherry skin and blackberry accounting for the fruit content. Bright in terms of flavor and profile, but on the leaner side when it comes to feel. Imported by Constellation Wines USA.
