Bright-intense appearance, with full-intense aromas of woody, fruity and earthy. A full-bodied red with woody, fruity and earthy flavours. The finish is layered-complex. An overall excellent red blend blend from usa.
A bit over whelming in fruit and in oak both on the nose and the palate. A noticeable amount of residual sugar- seemed unbalanced and forceful.
