Ripe and juicy in red and black berries, this wine has a big presence and plenty of bold flavor, retaining all the elements so beloved in the variety, from black pepper to leather and cigar, while displaying a deftness of winemaking skill in the cellar. Mouthfilling, it has zinging acidity on the finish, making for a memorable wine.
