The 2018 Swagger meets you on the nose with black fruits, cola and violets. Its deep brick red color is the first sign of this wine’s richness. Baker’s chocolate, coffee and charcoal fuse with juicy, perfectly ripe, black and red fruits that burst out of the glass without being jammy or overbearing. This wine displays a bold freshness with rounded acidity and integrated tannins that lend to an age worthiness that is also highly drinkable now.
