Blackberries and earth aromas with medium body. Fruit forward with juicy acidity. Well balanced and good length on fruit and structure. Enjoy now.

Bright dark red. Sappy cherry, raspberry, menthol, pepper and smoky oak on the nose. Suave and fine-grained, showing sappy lift and a light touch to the flavors of berries, spices and pepper. Finishes with spicy, dusty, building tannins and good grip. Perhaps less concentrated and deep than the 2012 version but I like this wine's verve.
