WSET style tasting note
Appearance – deep intensity ruby, showing tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a pronounced intensity, developing, with aromas of bright red fruit – red cherry, red plum juice and raspberry, stewed red fruit and a spicy note.

Palate – a dry wine, with medium (+) acidity, integrated medium (+) grippy tannins, medium (+) alcohol, medium (+) body, medium intensity flavours of macerated red fruits – spicy cherry, red plum with an earthy/dark chocolate note, liquorice and violets on the finish. A long length with a clean grippy finish.

Quality – a good quality wine, with a balance between acidity and alcohol, levels of which are in harmony with intensity of flavour.  A wine with a good level of fruit concentration and a modest complexity.  The tannins are a little dominant and drying, this coupled with the modest flavour intensity leads to an estimate of 2-3 years cellaring development potential.
