dec. 6th 2010. Drank after decanting for 1.5 hrs.

medium intensity on the nose with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, alot of sweet spice (the description of asian spice on the label is very accurate) and a little black pepper.

on the palate it had medium acidity and tannin with flavours of cherry, plum and a little leather. The sweet spice and also was apparent on the palate.

overall the wine was very good, and ready to drink, but can improve. An excellent value
