Inspired by this wine in August, 2015: Sitting on the porch rocking chair in the cool fall air, wool plaid blanket keeping the the chill away.
In the glass: Dark magenta, opaque from a quarter inch in.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, fruit blackberries and red currants. From the aroma, seems like this will be fresh, vibrant and young.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact rich with blackberry fruit, light acids and gentle surrounding tannins. The finish lasts longer than expected, settling slowly and clean.
In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
