The six red wines of Substance are nicely differentiated, this being the most dry and tannic, with penetrating berry fruit flavors defining the core. There's a wonderful sense of depth and the wine lingers in the mouth; quite dry but flavorful. The tannins are polished and ripe; one sip leads right into the next.
