The wine is an impressive deep dark almost black ruby color with a youthful purple hue on the rim. It has a pronounced and aromatic nose which is almost floral with vanilla, plum and spice nuances with toasty overtones as it opens in the glass. Full bodied, it has a solid core of rich ripe fruit supported by firm integrated tannins all kept in check by a nicely balanced acidity, which lifts the wine and keeps it fresh. Despite its power and structure it still maintains a certain charm and elegance right through to it long lingering almost opulent finish which makes it easy to drink enjoy despite its youth.
