Not a shy wine, but quite lively on the palate, loaded with high-toned fruits and bright acids. This is an interesting flavor mix, not jammy despite the high alcohol. The mainly red fruits are a bit jumbled together, and hints of leaf and fresh herb are scattered throughout. It's interesting and complex; a little on the green side.
