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….
