This has a punchy, feisty nose with small dark cherries and blueberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin. Espresso infuses the soft black fruit and it segues effortlessly into an easy-going finish that slips down the throat with ease. It has got “drinkability” plastered all over it.
