Nice on the nose, with masculine, dense aromas of ripe berry fruits. The palate begins snappy and gets more sheering as the wine unfolds; in the meantime, the cherry, berry and plum flavors are more compact than candied. Well-done for Bonarda, but slightly narrow and grabbing the more you get to know it.
