The Full Review

This wine is rich and grippy, but with excellent balance. The acidity is just right, lifting the weight slightly on the palate. It smells like just-crushed blackberries, fresh soil, and a hint of wood smoke. It’s a bottle to bring to the parents for a holiday meal, or a great weeknight steak wine.
