My tasting notes:
In the glass a dark ruby red color.
On the nose medium intensity with blackberries, dark cherries and some ceder, black olives and light vanilla.
On the palate dry, medium-bodied with soft mouthfeel showing dark fruits, vanilla and underbrush. Tannins are well integrated with a bit lack of acidity – for me. The finish has medium length.
