A brooding opaque wine that borders on purple in the glass.  On the nose I get black plums, blackberry, coconut, purple licorice, black raspberries and capsicum (just a hint).  On the palate the flavors are a touch muted but I do get black fruit, oak nuance and a bit of that vegetal note from the green pepper.  Dry from some very integrated tannins it has a balancing acidity but the fruit lacks power.  Medium (-) body and a mid length finish.  I’m disappointed in this $45 bottle that gets 87 points and 2 stars from me.  I was hoping for a bit more structure, more fruit and better balance.  Paired with grilled Tri-tip and roasted veggies.  Drink till 2025.  Salut….
