Inky purple in color. The nose has sweet black raspberries, slightly dusty. On the palate, this is jammy black raspberries. Medium tannins. Thsi makes very easy drinking and while not over the top, this is more about instant enjoyment than depth and complexity. Will need big, strong food to pair with but will drink well on its own. Sure to be a crowd favorite. Drink in the next five years. $30 retail.
