My first time trying this producer and I came away impressed. Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, dried cherries, roasted herbs and dust. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, there is nice cherry fruit, some black cherries, with a slight warmth. Long finish. Plenty of depth with nice acidity. This is great on its own and would work well with a nice plate of pasta. Drink over the next ten years.
