Deep, dark, dense, purplish cherry red with dark blue undertones. The denseness leads to fantastic tears in the glass.
Notes of wild and floral fruit, ripe dark fruits, spices (pepper, cloves), chocolate, nutmeg, dairy and toffee. Full of complexity.
Soft and warm on the first sip leading to a powerful voluminous yet balanced mid-palate. Sweet and dense tannins. Long, lingering aftertaste that reaffirms the freshness and the fruit. Complex yet long on the finish. Very easy to drink
