peppery spice nose, a bit of rusticity, nice bright dark fruit components, lengthy palate. a food pleasing wine. really love this nose!
On the nose there s a lot of red fruit with a hint of vanilla and a touch of pepper. On the palate there is some fruit (not a fruit bomb) a nice hint of vanilla and a slight taste of chocolate. A medium finish. A very interesting grape.
