Deep garnet-black core with bright, ruby rim. The über-youthful aromas evoke essences of black raspberry, damson and blueberry. The soft palate offers lovely suppleness while being framed by mouth-coating tannins and buoyant acidity. The fine balance allows the taster to focus on the pleasant mouthfeel and the vibrancy of an array of blue and black fruit flavors. Moderate length coupled with mid-depth complexity suggests it will drink well through 2016.
