Current release being 2016 and still only $17. I would be having a word if I was the accountant.

Earthy and starting to show a little maturation. Cassis/blackberry, plum and mulberry fruits with chocolate, coffee grounds and sweet oak. Woody pencil and rich bay leaf give a varietal thumbprint. Still quite bright on the medium-full palate with violets and chocolate with a long veneer of grippy tannin.

With the extra time in bottle this little guy is starting to show some interesting, slightly developed characters that bring a new dimension to a value for money wine. Smooth and succulent with a gently leathery spicy overlay to the medium weight dark chocolate and toasty primary characters.
