Black cherry in appearance with light+ viscosity. The nose has a medium intensity with leather, tar, earth, smoke and some dried blackberry and plums. The palate is dry and the body is light+. Of note is the good backbone of acidity present in this wine. Tannins are light and the finish is medium. I would drink this now given the lower tannin and lack of evident fruit. Would pair nicely with tomatoes, spicy sauces or medium cheeses.
