Deep ruby with purple hues. Pronounced aromas of raspberries, fresh plums, pomegranate, light toast and chocolate, opening up to show dried herbs and black cherries. Lighter and more elegant in body than the nose suggests. The acid and alcohol both sit underneath the luscious, elegant fruit of plums, raspberries, persimmons and light pepper with herbaceous overtones. The fine-grained tannins are already well integrated. Long persistent flavours of raspberries and persimmons remain on the palate.
