Youthful violet color. Displays spice-accented cassis, bitter cherry, licorice and flavors, with a slight tarriness that emerges with air. Still on the primary side, showing good depth and a touch of dark chocolate on the finish, which is framed by chewy, building tannins.

This firm red shows a savory character, with meaty and earthy detail and black olive notes that frame a core of currant. The tannins are a bit grippy, but the wine has a solid, if slightly rustic, balance. Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. 25,000 cases made.
