Full body with a juicy chewy and ripe palate with green pepper and jalapeno. Lovely fruit too. This with pulled pork would be mind-blowing. Drink or hold.

Perfumed high-toned aromas of red and dark berries pungent spicy oak and flowers. Youthfully tight and not showing its flesh today with a peppery quality contributing to the wine's juiciness and impression of structure. Still a bit edgy on the finish and in need of another year or two of bottle aging.
