Pure violet in color, with a nose packed full of creamy oak, sweet plum and blackberry. This is your prototypical modern-day bruiser. The palate offers a powder keg of sweet, chewy fruit, yet the acidity is right there corralling it all. Properly applied oak cuddles rather than overwhelms the fruit, while the full tannins make it a lion heart. Fabulous for a 2000 normale. Imported by Summa Vitis, Inc.
