A deep appearance of vibrant black, crimson-purple mousse with a fine persistent bead that looks simply inviting. The bouquet shows the aroma is initially restrained but as it opens up the level of fruit richness and concentration becomes quite obvious. The aromas are dry, dominated with a mix of liquorice and spiced plum-pudding notes with a sweet seductive array of small red berries such as mulberries and raspberries. The palate further opens up with super concentrated red fruit characters develop such as Maraschino cherry, prune juice and boysenberry. Rich and dry and extremely refreshing with an abundant red fruit flavours, mixed with dried herb notes and edges of tarry tannins and mineral-like acidity. The finish is dry but with plenty of strong red fruit flavours that linger for some time, which is just what a wine with this sort of concentration should have.
