Intense ruby-red in colour with purplish highlights, showing a brilliant clarity and lovely consistency. On the nose, the fruit is the protagonist with notes of cherry, redcurrant, strawberry and plum. Added to these are spicy hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, roast cocoa, coffee and hazelnut. The palate is warm, supported by a refreshing acidity and the tannins are dense and elegant.
