The wine’s pale to medium garnet tones are just beginning to acquire a tawny edge. There are scents of herbs, chocolate and mint in the perfumed bouquet with a faint, underlying aroma of sour cherry. The medium-bodied palate shows nice complexity and a judicious mix of fruit and elegant new wood. Robust tannins and acids carry the wine through to a balanced finish.
