This wine poured much lighter than I expected, a pale ruby with an interesting bouquet of red fruit, soft leather, red liquorice, herbal and floral notes. On the mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, soft in texture with lively acidity and dusty tannins. Medium length on the finish, not especially concentrated but the flavours were very nice. Initially I didn’t quite like this wine, but after about one hour, it really grew on me. My recommendation is to served lightly chilled after an hour in the decanter.
