The color is deep purple. Aromas of ripe red fruit, blackberry, black cherry, hint of spice. In the mouth, a pleasant melding of lush fruit that is expressive, but not an oppressive fruit bomb. Good balance and taste of fruit through front, mid palate and finish. Enough acidity and structure to let it pair well with many foods. Drinkable alone as well though, with good ‘quaffability’ factor. Finish slightly off dry, not hot or tannic. Read the full review on Simple Hedonisms.
