Saturated crimson in colour, flavours consist of raspberry, boysenberry, violets, caramelized tobacco leaf, spice box, pencil shavings. A tantalizing palate offers concentrated, juicy red fruits, damp earth, cedar, baking spices. Round and focused with sweet, fine-grained tannins and a long, slate-like finish.
