Supple and bursting with ripe purple fruits, this is a real success. The grape's stemmy and green character is held in restraint, and the purple plummy fruit flavors come through in a sweet core, surrounded with flavors of espresso, dark chocolate and stem. Well balanced and firm, this is a wine to enjoy now through 2022.
