Tasting Note:January 27, 2017

Deep garnet to ruby red. Delicious savory and meaty notes on the nose. As it opens up there is some more dark red fruits. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and medium plus to full bodied. Layers of dark cocoa, a little mint, some light blueberries, and a bit savory too with herbs. Good balanced acidity and long finish.
