Dark ruby to garnet color. Nose is dominated by clove and allspice with red currant and cherry. Solid palate with great texture, balanced acidity and pleasant tannin structure. Finishes extremely well and completely dry without heat and the sensation of residual sugar. This is a joy to drink now, but should hold for a few more years without problems.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
