    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Light nose of plums and berries. Light palate of berries, herbs and iron. Light acidity, light tannin, medium body. Drink now. No rating. Bottle seemed a bit off at best, certainly didn’t match the profile of this wine.
