This fruit driven, aromatic and full bodied wine has notes of black cherry, black currant and light strawberry compiled into a jammy compote. The tannins are subtle and the finish is medium. Even though this wine is quite fruity, the fruit is at the point of becoming integrated and I think that it will benefit from at least a couple of years in the cellar. However, since I am not a fan of screw caps, I myself will not cellar it to see how it evolves (this surely will start up a heated debate on corks vs. screw caps vs. fake corks). My impression: NICE. Tasted Mar/10.
