Visual: mid depth cherry red colour, clean and bright coupled with a good tear.
Nasal: the dominant note is that of balsamic and of spices such as those associated with fresh leather, toasted almonds, ground coffee, black pepper, and clove while in the background one can detect the aroma of ripe red fruit and compote all of which help to smooth and round out the wine.
Taste: well-rounded in the mouth with velvety tannins. Once more, we are aware of the balsamic and the spices. Agreeable aftertaste.
