The nose offers aromas of red fruits and roses. On the palate it is flat-out juicy, with the sensation of biting into cherries and plums and letting the juice run down your chin. Floral aromas come across on the palate as delicate highlights, while graphite and milk chocolate provide anchoring depth. Drink with braised short ribs. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH

He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
