Blackberry, capsicum and roasted coffee nose. Smooth, fruit-driven palate, bright and juicy, with balsamic and roasted pepper notes.
91pts James Suckling
Dark and smoky. The major tannin structure needs until 2019 or 2020 to fully harmonize, but this does have more than enough berry fruit to carry that.
On the nose, red berries, black berries, smoke and toasted aromas come through. Juicy on the palate, with cherry and chocolate notes in combination with toasted oak. This wine is well structured and full-bodied with smooth tannins and a long finish.
Pair with prime ribs, chicken with paprika, or steak fajitas.
