A fruity bouquet of dark plum and blueberry is prominent in this 100% varietal wine, from a mountainous vineyard site known for tannic strength. The power is there but it's nicely managed, allowing the velvety texture and a balance of weight to shine through, topped off on the finish in dried herb.
