Aromas of currants, berries and hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, juicy and lightly jammy. Simple finish. Drink now.
(13.5% alcohol; fermented and aged entirely in concrete tanks): Medium red. Aromas of redcurrant, smoky oak, tobacco leaf, herb and olive. Juicy, supple wine with lovely vinosity and a complicating hint of greenness to its redcurrant and plum flavors. There's an umami smoothness here that I like. Finishes with a suggestion of resiny low tones but with good length and lift. The tannins melt into the palate.
