Medium brick red in color, and only semi-opaque. Sour cherries, freshly turned earth, and vanilla are on the nose. On the palate, cherries and redcurrant join turned earth and leather. Tastes are rich an the mouth-feel round. Tannins are sweet and acids bright. This is a very pretty glass of wine. Drink with roast pork loins. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
