I think the label is cool, very cool. I don’t normally buy based on graphics but this one had to be done. It is a bit murky in the glass but shows youth still with a deep ruby color. On the nose I get black plum, black currants, blackberry, blueberry compote, cedar plank, vanilla and coconut. The palate is very tasty- black and blue fruits, toasty oak nuances and well integrated tannins. Low to medium acidity makes for a nice mouthfeel that is medium bodied. Th finish is shortish but chock full of fruit. Shame it doesn’t last very long. I like this $20 wine that will drink nicely till 2025 and pair well with Osso Bucco, lamb stew or Steak au Poivre. I am going with 90 points which aligns with the pros, making it a 5 star effort. Salut….
