Like a delicious chunk of dark chocolate with mint filling, this red is sweet and generous, with enough chalky tannin to moderate its Portlike ripeness. A few years in the bottle will provide more complexity.

Bright ruby color. Smoky strawberry, raspberry and floral aromas are fresh and fine. Juicy, tannin-free red berry flavors show a jammy character and no rough edges. This is all about fruit, finishing sweet and persistent.
