A deep purple/crimson in the glass. Initial scents of menthol and eucalyptus lead to deeper aromas and flavors of blackberries, pectin, earth, fleshy black plum, black licorice, and a note of cocoa powder. Medium-full in body, with sweet, dusty tannins and a supple mouthfeel. This is a solid, everyday red, well-suited to lamb chops on the barbecue. A value vino.
