Dark red; blackberry-bacon fat, cigarette ash airs on the nose, raspberry in back. There’s good grain on the palate, clear fruit with a smoky style; it runs openly, doesn’t carry enormous stuffing, shows oak traces. It doesn’t move quite consecutively along the palate. There’s some coolness from the stems in a lightly chewy close, blueberry fruit there.
