Opaque purple, this wine had peppery, berry fruit aromas that were well integrated with oak. It was similar on the palate and added plums. It was smooth, rich and mouth-filling with tannins that sneaked up in the long finish.
It's definitely New World in style but is not an over-the-top fruit bomb, nor does the alcohol intrude. I thought it was nicely balanced. While not a real complex wine, it's tasty, has great texture, and I give it two thumbs up. Drink it now.
