Possessing an intense garnet color, the nose opens up with chili pepper and white pepper spice notes followed by fruity aromas of cherry, black berry fruit, redcurrant, and blackcurrant upon further airing. Full and powerful with an intense initial attack of black fruit flavours on the palate, it further displays a solid roundness with pepper & vanilla undertones mid-palate leading to an elegant finish complemented by firm tannins.
