Deep red in the glass with purple highlights. Scents of raspberry and currant dominate the nose, and are backed by a dusting of stones. The red berry fruit follows through on the palate. This is a full and round red with loads of juicy berry fruit, a great mineral backbone and it finishes with a note of sweet spice.
