Kristin scored this wine: 96/100

Nose: Although just a baby, showing some leathery dried fruit characteristics such as raisins, prunes, dried cherries, medicinal herbs notes, coffee notes Palate: Dried cherries, raisins, red & black currant, licorice, nutmeg, cinnamon, herbal notes, dark chocolate & espresso, high acidity matched with tannin yet beautifully integrated. Drinking well now, but will continue to round out & improve for 10-15 years. Pair with lamb or steak dishes, hard aged cheeses, dark chocolate, meaty ragu pasta dishes
