Pleasant varietal aromas of blackberry and cassis with a subtle oak overtone greet the nose.
Bright blackberry follows nicely in the mouth with substantial tannin and a bit more oak to flesh out rich, full flavors. Fruit and oak show up again nicely in the finish but are slightly eclipsed by tannin in this still youthful wine.

Drink now with a nice steak or age for more complex subtlety in the future.
