i think maybe it has a blackberry nose? i sort of forgot to take it slow at first because it smelled so nice i went in for a big gulp before writing any notes down (my sommelier skills are not exactly super refined).
juicy but with wonderful tannins, full and dry at the end without any spice. i spent way too much time in the wine aisle until i finally decided i wanted my usual kind of red, which is generally a big dry dirt-tasting cabernet. i couldn’t find that so i got this blend instead and it’s turned out quite nicely. it’s right in my wheelhouse because it’s juicy and drinkable up front while still being dry and long at the end. 4.5/5 defo would get again.
