Nose: Lush and ripe red fruit with spice and oak notes throughout.
Color: Very rich garnet with "melting ice" edges.
Palate: Lush front and mid palate with ripe red fruits, dark cherry, and nutmeg/cinnamon, but an unfortunate short finish. I wanted the wine to have a full ride, but the tannins dried up and the flavor left quickly. I imagine with a bit more time in the bottle for the tannins to refine, this will be raised from a 'good' wine to a 'great' wine. Especially for the value of approximately $30-35.
