Inky purple, almost opaque, this dense, beautifully structured wine offers abundant aromas and flavours of sweet black cherries, cassis, espresso, and vanilla bean, nestled in a core of ripe blueberries. Powerful and full-bodied, it lingers on the finish with touches of black pepper and baking spices.
Beautiful purple colour, pepper and spice nose. Well structured, balanced and smooth with intense blackberry and black currant aromas. Juicy and full bodied. A good sipper.
Wonderful perfumed nose: Dense fruit, vanilla, sweet spice. Great colour. Full bodied, plush mouth-feel. Tons of flavour: Currants, blueberry pie, herbs, prunes, smoke. Sweet and savoury and quite tannic. A bit woody. Long, dry finish. I'd have guessed this was some obscure Italian wine. Overall it has a unique profile. I can see why it's used sparingly in blends to add dimension. On it's own it has character. Interesting and highly drinkable.
