Fragrant and inviting with lush aromas of red berries, black cherries and chocolate. In the mouth the wine is loaded with powerful ripe fruit flavors, still compact and primary, but promising excellent development in the cellar. Threads of iron and coffee appear, and the wine takes a sinuous path through the palate and into a lingering finish.
