A bright, ruby red colour
Classic aromas of mint, black cherry, cassis and barrel spice are present in spades.
A wonderful, full mouthfeel to this wine, with delicious flavors of coffee, plum, cassis and hints of red and black cherries. The tannins, oak and alcohol are all perfectly balanced and make this a very approachable wine with a long, smooth finish.
