Great wine and an even better value. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, black olives, black pepper and slight bacon fat. Full bodied. On the palate, this is complex and deep. Layers of black raspberry fruit, minerality, smoke and earthiness. Great balance. Long finish. This is delicious. Drink over the next ten to twelve years. It will work great on its own and works well with roasted meats or veggies.
