Notes from the winery say, 'Bright violet colour. Aromas of red berries, spices and dried flowers with a spicy note that is becomes pronounced as it breathes. Juicy in the mouth, offers fresh currants and cherry flavours. Fine-grained tannins add to a long finish with accented spices."
There is lively red fruit(berries cherries) with hints of leather, milk chocolate and cocoa. On oxygenation, it forms firm tannins and well-balanced acidity. A food wine with sufficient mid-palate and length.
Scores are decent, such as 90 Points, Vinous Antonio Galloni, who writes:
"Opaque ruby. Ripe black and blue fruit, cola and floral scents pick up suggestions of liquorice and allspice as the wine opens up. Fleshy, sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering cherry liqueur, boysenberry and violet pastille flavours energized by a spicy nuance. Stretches out steadily with air and repeats the blue fruit note on the subtly tannic finish, which lingers with very good tenacity. This wine delivers superb value."
