Concentrates all the varietal aromas of the grape, ripe fruit, plums and blackberries. Fruity and tasty, over a discrete backround of balsamic notes.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright purple. Dark berry and floral pastille aromas are complicated by notes of cola and fresh rose. Juicy blackberry and cherry-vanilla flavors show very good depth, with a peppery element adding energy. Becomes brighter and sweeter with air and finishes on a floral note, with silky tannins adding shape."
