Dark ruby / purplish in color with a purple rim.

Very aromatic nose of wild flowers, strawberries, vanilla, blueberries, blackberries, cooked plums, dark cherries, earth, dirt and cloves.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, vanilla, currant, licorice, cloves, oak, dirt, cherries and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and great looking legs.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.
