Lots of spice in this red wine experience: leafy, fruity, aromas, with blackberry with pepper predominating into the front- and mid-palate.  A medium-weight wine.  Same peppery, leafy blackberry elements on end-palate and even in the finish.  Moderate tannins, more fruity than woody.  Good with white bean and pork loin stew. Recommended. BSE
