The nose shows deep, dark fruits, perhaps mulberry, with tomato. Very bright acids are the first thing to notice on the palate. The flavor profile is a blend of red and black fruit, black currant and red currants. Tomato and tobacco show on the mid-palate. This is a food-friendly wine at a good price. Drink with pulled pork. Recommended. DH
