First day of wine tasting in over 10 days, my biggest hiatus in years, and very thankful for this reintroduction. Purple ruby color. On the nose, youthful, medium intensity, cherry, plum, subtle funk, coffee, leather, cracked pepper, with moderate oak, and no earth to speak to. On the palate, dry, medium+ intensity, medium tannin, medium acidity, very nice layers in this wine, a palpable sense of depth and complexity, with good, fruit, spice, “other” flavors, structure, and finish. Very solid wine, loaded with all the things I like about wine.
