The color is a light, clear, translucent garnet. Dark cherry, raspberry, and Autumn spices waft up from the glass. The mouth-feel is round and full. Tart cranberry leads, with rich black cherry playing back up. Black pepper and coffee grounds pop up as highlights. A tart red fruit sensation lingers. Tannins are fine, acids in balance without an overwhelming zing. This is a lovely wine, balanced and layered, perfect for aged cheeses or pot roast. Recommended. 89 points. DBH
