Savory from the fragrant, lively nose to the taut, focused palate, this riveting, tense wine is made for food. An initial, dramatically tugging and crunchy tension on the palate yields to generously concentrated, forest berry flavors accented with herbal spice lift. Flavors pile up well into the finish, adding sun-baked earth, fresh leather and dried tomato. Drinking well now, this wine has the structure to keep and even evolve well for several more years.
