Palate – a dry wine, with medium acidity, drying medium (+) tannins, medium alcohol and a medium body, with a medium intensity, with flavours of  red currant and red plum with a savoury woody note.  The length is medium (+) with a clean finish.

Quality – an acceptable quality wine, with balanced acidity and alcohol, tannins are a little dominant and drying for the flavour intensity; this is neither a complex nor concentrated wine, with a moderate finish. Drink up within 1-2 years.
