This is a lovely, while bombastically full-bodied, 100% varietal wine, brooding in blackberry jam, peppery cinnamon and an inviting floral nose of cherry blossom. The body drinks lean despite its power and underlying ripeness, remaining lengthy and complex through the finish. Drink now through 2021.
