Colour is ruby-red shading to garnet. Bouquet very intense and forward with notes of spices such as cloves, walnut, violet, and gentian fruit such as currants and strawberries. The palate is full-bodied with a rich and generous, with a soft light vein of tannin over violets and a long lingering finish.
