An expressive and nicely complex nose that is now beginning to turn to secondary with earth and subtle spice nuances that complement rich, round and sweet flavors that offer good punch and while this will be capable of additional aging, it is essentially ready now despite the still moderately firm finishing tannins.

This mature red is marked by a whiff of cherry jam, followed by sweet strawberry and cherry flavors. Lively and fresh, with some woodsy accents. Has good length. Drink now. 625 cases imported.
