Concentrated black cherry notes on the nose and palate are accented by dark, mossy, bramble notes and hints of green and menthol. There's a faint tomato leaf note that lingers throughout, but a rich fruit profile combined with smooth tannins and bright acidity make this medium-bodied wine a pleasant, straightforward pick.
