Light caramel nose, thin body, moderate acid. Plums on palate, raisin finish.
The wine has a beautiful garnet color with a bright and very fruity aroma of cassis and strawberry jam that carries over into the palate. The tannins are high and soft, which leaves a long and smooth finish with flavors of spice and a distinct chalkiness. The wine seems slightly unbalanced with overpowering alcohol and tannins.
