This seemed to be a step above the 2017 although both were quite good. Ruby/purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cherries, dust, char and spice. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, cherries, tart cherries and slight chocolate notes. Good finish. This needs a few years of cellaring to hit peak though it drinks well now. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years. A nice wine to match with Pasta with Bolognese sauce.
