Wide-ranging fruity aromas of cordial cherry, red currant and cranberry are joined by white pepper, wet concrete and hints of cigar box. It’s supremely balanced with those same bright and juicy red fruit tones, soft tannins, lingering acidity and finishing touches of orange zest and black pepper.

Rating: Outstanding!
