My first time trying this producer. It was good but a bit under ripe. Perhaps another five years and it sorts itself out. I have my doubts but time will tell. Ruby in color. The nose has cherries, bell peppers and roasted herbs. On the palate, there is a green streak running thru this wine. Firm tannins. Underlying tar. There is some complexity here. In the end, it depends on what you like, but for my tastes, I this could have been better had they let the fruit hang a bit longer. It has a nice acidity and will work better with food. No harm in waiting on it at this point. Served at a group dinner, this was controversial with some liking it more than I.
