See through dark shade of red in the glass. The nose has red currants and pomegranate. The palate gives me mulling spices, currant reduction and dried red fruit. There is a healthy dose of slightly green tannins that immediately dry out my gums. The mid palate is quite astringent with notes of red fruit- mainly currants but a bit of rhubarb adding some acidity to the mix. The finish is relatively short but I do get some really nice flavors and the tannins tend to mellow pretty quickly. This one is a touch young and the greeness of the tannins worries me. It’s not a subtle Pinot nor is it over-extracted, a nice balance of flavor, structure and freshness. 88 points and 3 stars for this $22 wine. Drink till 2027 with roast Chicken, perhaps eggplant parmigiana. Salut….
