Opaque bright dark red black core with a vibrant purple red hue.

Medium weight the palate has a youthful vibrancy to its rich flavours of ripe cherries, raspberries, liquorice, incense infusions, faint earth and spicy pepper. Finely grained tannins meld perfectly with the bright juicy fruit. Finishes with good freshness and a long spicy ripe cherry, dark raspberry, liquorice, earth, incense and pepper aftertaste.
