A very juicy and well balanced wine. On the nose we get dark stewed fruit, blackberry, lavender, leather, and a hint of licorice. There’s also a black pepper on the nose that is more prominent on the palate. There is a noticible heat that alludes to an alcohol content that’s higher than the 13% indicated on the bottle. Tannins are fine and we’ll integrated.
