Deep red ruby color with aromas of ripe red berries, spice & black pepper. Fruity, with plum, fig, ripe berries on the palate. The initial taste is a little intense, but it's complemented by the softness and sweetness of the tannins; Opens up with time; Medium body and structure and a nice finish. Decanted for about 2 hours. Good value.
Lovely red fruit and spices, delightful mouthfeel and soft supple finish - I'm going to follow other reviewers and let the next bottle breath a bit more - found a few at $10 locally - nice pruchase - recommended
