The wine shows a beautiful ruby red colour when poured into the glass. The nose is serious and complex with notes of black cherries, black currant, forest floor, orange peel, lavender and anise seed. Upon tasting the palate shows a velvety, round mid with a refined, textured, linear finish. Tasty, grippy tannins at the end of palate allows for a great ageing potential. A wine which can be enjoyed now in all its complexity with so many different aromatic layers evolving in the glass, but also a wine which will thrive with some ageing – allowing the tasty, grippy tannins to soften with time while simultaneously refining the aromatic aromatic profile.
