Fruit-forward and full of zing, this wine begs to be on the table. Blackberry, tomato, and herbs roil up from the glass. Firm and fleshy, with more acid than tannin, blackberry and raspberry have a touch of tomato in the background, and herbs and zing on the finish. Drink with beef bolegnese. Recommended. 88 points.
