This youthful red blend has an elegant purple hue in its ruby colour. A fragrant nose of dried roses leads to mulberry and blueberry jam. Ripe and juicy on the palate, the spiced dark fruits are concentrated and poised (acidity at 5.7g/l) with polished tannins providing structure. A pinch of black pepper on the long finish. A well-made value choice.
