This modern red shows depth and balance. Bright blackberry and currant flavors mingle with toasty vanilla and underlying mineral notes. Offers firm, well-integrated tannins and lively acidity. Drink now through 2015. 150 cases imported.–TM

Bright ruby. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, cherry, licorice, cinnamon and allspice. Supple and juicy in the mouth, with very good vivacity to its red fruit, cassis and floral pastille flavors. Penetrating acidity extends the long, spicy, floral-dominated finish. This is very nicely balanced and delicious right now.
