This dark red wine has a transparent clarity that is striking. Plum and black cherry flavors are offset by forest floor and dark earth. Piquant black pepper is inviting and complements the slightly meaty aroma. The flavors are mouth-filling and plumy. The soft round texture of this wine is unreal. You just want to keep rolling it around in your mouth. Acids are balanced and the oak is well-integrated and subtle. The finish lingers and is dominated by fresh plum fruit.
