Good full medium ruby. Black fruits, licorice and tar on the nose, perked up by pungent herbs. Ripe, lush and spicy; can't match the flagship wine for seamless texture but this boasts more early chocolatey sweetness. Complex saline tones shade to wild sage on the back end, where the broad, building tannins are a bit more rustic than those of the estate wine.

purely domestic wine report | 92

Shows a dark core of color, with a magenta edge. The nose delivers very dense and dark initial impressions lifted by some red cherry with air. On the palate, there is a pleasant, precise entry with a little red fruit again coming in to loosen up the relatively compact black fruit flavors. Overall, it is sweet and supple with a nice tannin profile
