Ravines Wine Cellars 'Maximilien' 2017 Review

This is an excellent New York wine. It has such a nice grip on the palate, keeping the core of fruit centered. It smells like fresh-picked blackberries and herbs, with a hint of balsamic. The tannins are still softening and can settle for another year or so, but it's drinking really well right now.
