"There is just enough reduction present to suppress the underlying fruit but it shouldn't last. Otherwise there is a really lovely texture to the attractively intense and vibrant middle weight flavors that display only a touch of rusticity on the complex, focused and solidly persistent finale. This too is really very good and worth a look."
