Deep ruby red colour with a lovely leather nose. To taste I was expecting it to be velvety smooth, but my initial taste was a little sharp with medium acidity but it lost a bit of the sharpness as my palette got accustomed to it.
This is a big bold warm wine with smoky dark cherry flavours that is yelling out for food with the acidity (it worked really well with Schnitzel and an awesome Potato Salad; my wife is so clever). It is a pleasure to drink with an air of complexity surrounding it that beckons for yet another taste.
Drinking well now and it would probably keep for a few more years, but I don’t feel it will get any better.
