Color: Medium cherry garnet. (2.5) Bouquet: Pretty boysenberry and tart cherry, but restrained with some acidity sticking out. (2.5) Body: Decent fruit, but thin with too much chalky acidity. Middleweight. (2.5) Flavor: Parallels bouquet,but even more restrained. (2.0) Finish: Parallels bouquet, with some length, but closed yet also austere. (2.5)
Overall: Shows some structure and complexity, but doesn't show enough fruit or concentration to risk aging it. (12.0)
