Review

Lots of sweet oak overlies a generous measure of fully ripe, dark-berry fruit in the moderately extracted aromas and flavors of this ample young wine, and complexing elements of pepper, roasted meats and subtle notes of fresh earth leave an indelible varietal stamp to both. The wine is full-bodied and rounded with very good palatal length, and its scant suggestion of finishing heat is adequately buffered by continuous, easy-to-taste fruit.
