Flavourful (although not overwhelmingly so) and somewhat jammy, but balanced.

Deep purple in colour, found it a bit herbaceous on the nose with intense dark fruit. Opened the bottle two hours prior to drinking it, it was smooth and voluptuous with a good dash of acidity. Black Cherry was the most powerful flavor, with a bit of spice and earth creeping in on the finish. Zenato is a favorite producer of mine, and I was not disappointed with this bottle.
