Full, forward aromas of black-fruit berries and soft oak are there to greet you. The palate is plump, plummy and very full-bodied. No wimpiness to this big red; instead a lot of good grapey, smoky flavors have jumped on board a very clean, structured frame. Bright purple and juicy, this is the definition of a friendly wine.
