A deep-garnet colour hints at the extraction in this wine. Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum, and a savoury touch of anise. Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouth feel and bright acidity. There is a clean, elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry, and tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish.
