The Full Review
This wine has concentration and depth, along with some great acidity giving it a nice grip on the palate, but not at all overwhelming. It smells like rich earth and a batch of just-plucked wild berries, still smelling of the bark of the vine they grew on. You will also recognize the subtle hint of balsamic (the thick aged stuff). If there was ever a focused casual wine for a meal with good friends and a rack of lamb smothered with garlic and mint, this is it.
