Tasting Notes: Deep purple in the glass with an amethyst rim. Plum, cherry, and blackberry fruit with cool black tea notes dominate the nose. A fruit-driven palate follows and is backed by pounded stones. This medium-bodied red has great minerality, moderate acidity and finishes with silken tannins. Can be drunk young or aged. A versatile wine.
