Dark garnet in color. Plum, black pepper. Taste: round dark fruit for a first impression just before being attacked by a wave of mouth drying tannins. This needs some time and/or decanting in my opinion to soften up through the mid palate and finish or you better be drinking it with food. Great acidity. May throw a few in the cellar to see what comes of it.

Dark and cloudy, this wine started with a pleasing nose of cherry, basil, black fruit, and clove, but the palette did not follow through with enough flavor. It tasted of sour cherries with a short finish, and did not have enough fruit to balance with the dry tannins or tart acidity.
