Dark ruby-red to the edge. Bright Bing cherries, pepper, and violets on the nose. Fresh and clean on the palate, medium-bodied core of herbal-laden fruit encased by sleek acidity and mild tannins. A healthy dose of Mourvèdre adds depth and character to the 2012. Drinking well now, after 30 minutes in the glass, but sturdy enough to last 10-12 years.
