From estate vineyards. Don't look for plush, luxurious Napa softness and melted tannins here. This is a sturdy, tart wine, with punchy herbal, minty, peppery flavors that cut over underlying blackberry notes. It's a muscular wine, but not a tannic one. It won't benefit from age. The strong favors are what they are, and suggest lamb with, say, mint sauce.
