A moderately high-toned nose offers up notes of mostly various wild red berries, earth and a hint of wood spice. The pliant, rounded and easy-going lighter weight flavors possess good delineation and sneaky good length and the mildly rustic finale.
This wine’s fruit has potent clarity, the deep red fruit-skin flavor on the spectrum between black cherry and cranberry. There’s some stemminess and a feral or fennel spice aspect, adding to the meaty, slightly rustic tannins.
Bright cherry, currant and strawberry fruit flavors are backed by a dense matrix of dusty tannins in this compact red. Balanced, lingering with a hint of cumin on the finish. The saturated flavors are intense.
