The wine list says this wine is "strongly fruit oriented," and that is an understatement. Aromas and flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, black raspberry and cherries are almost overpowering. Almost like a fruit smoothie. Very ripe fruit with no tannins or oak to get in the way.
As much as I like fruit-oriented wines, this one may go a little too far in that direction. On the other hand, it holds up very well against the bold flavors of a lamb kebob. It's by no means simple, and I wouldn't rule out substantial development with a few years of bottle age.
