Ruby clear color with dark purple reflections. Nose of small redberries, soft spices, with a fresh and aniseed note. The woodiness is fine and lightly marked with vanilla notes. In mouth, the supple attack evolves towards a delicately wooded fruit and ends with a tip of freshness which extends the aromatic persistency.
Dave says "This one has a nice light body, very fine. Not something for you big Bordeaux lovers, but if you like a soft, compelling easy drinking Bordeaux, give this one a try."
When tasting the wine, it's best to give it some air as it has quite a bit of oak right now, but thereâ€™s definitely some nice fruit underneath as well. After an hour or so in the glass you'll find a smooth, medium-bodied wine with deep fruit flavors plus a good amount of cola and a bit of spice. It ends dry with good length, lots of lingering fruit and a little tobacco and smoke. Tasty stuff!
