The wine expresses itself aromatically with nuances of fresh blackberry and cranberry with ever-so-subtle hints of savory dried herbs. The tannin structure is finely polished, and its juicy backbone is the major player from front to back in this classic beauty. Well-balanced acidity ensures it will age famously over the next several years.
