The first nosing is a little green but it's followed by nuances of black pepper, basil, strawberry hull and plum skins. The palate shows a riper offering of stewed berries and tea leaves. Medium acidity and soft tannins make this wine ready to drink now, with no real promise of improvementwith more age.
