Crimson red in colour, looking suspiciously like ruby port; the nose bears deep fruity aromas, with blackberries and orange zest at the forefront. The body is medium, leaning toward full, and the palate is surprisingly dry and herbal, with the fruit notes tucked into the pleasant background. The finish is warm and long-lasting. 17% ABV.
Initial whiffs detect ripe yet tart aromas of red grapes, raspberries and black berries; time in the glass rounds off the bouquet, adding delicate hints of cinnamon and grape vines. Palate entry is clean, tart and properly fruity; midpalate is intensely grapy, juicy and savory. Finishes elegantly in a grape perserves-like manner. 94 Points Wine Enthusiast.
