Snooth.com ~ "Sweet, ripe crushed red berry fruit flavors and aromas are offset by bright, vibrant notes of black pepper and a suggestion of leather in this wine, and are supported by supple, medium-bodied tannins."
Winemaker's tasting notes ~ " Bright deep violet hue. The nose is fruit driven with blueberry and black cherry character. The palate combines finesse and roundness and has a spicy finish. The great balance and freshness lead to an immediately drinking and enjoyable red wine even if its structure will permit several years of cellaring. (March, 2015)"
