Ripe, medium-high intensity nose delivers tobacco leaf, dark red fruit, and herbaceous hints. The medium-bodied palate shows nice aroma replays plus subtle, well-integrated oak tones. Very good acidity is a touch tart, while supple tannins add texture. The finish length is very good. Tasted Aug/2019.
