This dry red wine has quite deep intensity purple colour. On nose it gives quite high intensity aromas of black plum, candied black berry, violet, sweet vanilla, toast and touch of strawberry bubblegum. Medium acidity, alcohol and quite full bodied. Quite high fine grained tannin too. The flavours contain black cherry, blachcurrant, toast and vanilla, all at quite high intensity. Fairly long length with black cherry finsih. (94) Surprisingly ripe.
