Vibrant crimson colour with a dark purple hue. Aromas of black cherry, freshly ground coffee, melted liquorice and a grind of black pepper. The palate possesses a fine grained texture comprising of ripe tannin, which provides great depth. The texture is matched by pungent fruit flavours of plum and raspberry.
