Dense and very dark Wine in appearance. Black on the core, red on the rim.
The nose is a little reductive and takes some time to open up. It does let out aromas of warm dark berry notes (blackberry, dark cheery) and oaky tones. Oaky and sweet spices are also prominent.
The mouthfeel has a certain density in line with the apparent concentration. Tannins are dense yet a drying on the finish. Medium acidity.
Savory flavors are dominant overwhelming the discrete ripe red berries ones: rubber, vanilla, cabbage, and clove.
