Brilliant deep purple in appearance. There are strong berry and vanilla spice characters on the nose.
The palate is full and rich, typical of Water Wheel wines, with noticeable berry and licorice flavors. The wine has excellent length with a long and persistent finish balanced with fine, chalky tannins.
It is ready to drink now and will continue to improve in the medium term. It is a superb table wine, ideal to serve with a wide variety of red meat dishes.
