That is clearly a wine constituted of very ripe grapes bathed with loads of sunshine, and you’ll inform simply from sniffing on the glass.

The palate bursts with a juicy (and once more meaty) acidity) that balances the medium-to-rich physique really feel. Flavors are definitely abundantly spicy. Hints of inexperienced wooden, a heap of black and inexperienced pepper, a wealth of caramel and darkish cherry.

This can be a complicated wine in a dry acidic model but that includes a wealthy velvety tannic texture and oily physique.
