This is a deep purple coloured dry red wine. On nose it has quite high intensity aromas of blackcurrant, black plum, prune, dried fig, violet, smoke and touch of graphite, damped earth and mint. Medium acidity, alcohol and full bodied. The tannin is soft and ripe at medium level. Quite high intensity flavours of black cherry, black plum, vegetal, mint leaf, blackcurrant, licorice and touch of earth and smoke. Fairly long length with black berry finish. (94)
