The wine was very fruit forward and richly consisted of blackberry, blueberry, currant, and strawberry. I also noted a hint of cocoa, very subtle spices, and a touch of licorice in the finish that lent a wonderful elegance. The wine was very full-bodied, my favorite kind of inky-violet color, finished with respectable tannins and a good structure. If I were to say anything contradictory, I might only wonder how much the wine would benefit even more from a couple years in the wine cellar. It's a home run, especially for the price.
