Ripe, pristine aromas of black cherry and blackberry introduce this plump, openknit wine. It’s approachably fruity and juicy, framed by soft, feathery tannins and yielding acidity. Hints of dried herb and earth lend savory complexity. It’s ready to drink now, but could hold well though 2024. Best Buy.
