The medium+ intensity nose is herbaceous with dark fruit, and grilled herbs and red pepper aromas. It's medium+ bodied on the concentrated palate with pleasant herbaceous aroma replays and subtle oak spice supported by juicy acids and supple tannins. Very good length on the balanced finish. Tasted Dec/2019. Score: 88+ pts
