2019 Midnight has a deep purple hue and dominant notes of raspberry, red currant, and black tea, along with subtler notes of licorice and white pepper.
The first sip reveals vibrant acidity and lots of red and blue fruits. Cocoa powder tannins and a little spicy oak fill out the mid-palate.
This is a medium-weight wine, but the finish has surprising power and persistence. This will be best from release to 7 years of aging and incredibly versatile for food pairing.
