Tight and firm young wine with tar and berry flavors that follow through to a medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish.
A ripe and spicy wine, this shows rich tannins and a solid texture. Juicy blackberry-jelly flavors lighten the load of richness and shed an attractive light on the wine's fruitiness. Drink from 2021.
