This wine can be deceptive, as it doesn't burst forth with glorious fruit. What it does have is texture and detail, and the start-to-finish experience rewards your full attention. Layered with forest floor, earth, rock and wild berry notes, it's underscored by ample acidity. The finish goes on and on.
