This pours a medium-deep crimson color with cranberry shading at the rim. The wine’s youthful nose is fragrant with delicate notes of strawberry, rhubarb and red currant. A combination of fresh and dried herbs and peat notes add aromatic dimension. The palate is quite light, with moderate alcohol, sculpted yet powdery tannins and lilting acidity. Modestly concentrated, with a rather short finish, this medium-bodied wine is best enjoyed now through 2017, to appreciate the primary fruit.
