A relative oldie.
Dark, nearly opaque ruby red.
Spice, citrus, red fruits on nose.
On the palate, tarry, with a shot of Rosella’s-like grapefruit tossed into the mix.
Good tannins and acidity provide grip to the medium-long finish.
Compared to its more voluptuous 2007 brethren, this rocks more powerful restraint.
