Appearance: Opaque ruby with a blue tinge;
Nose: Cassis, blackcurrant, cedar, vanilla;
Palate: A complex bundle of fruit and herbs opens up in the mouth and leads to a long comforting finish. The tannins are velvet smooth and the acid stout enough to retain intrerest even with heavy red meat and sauces.
An excellent value. Recommended.
