If you are looking for a full-bodied flavorsome wine this is it.
Deeply coloured and showing good viscosity indicating the richness of alcohol and body.
The aroma is of raspberry fruit characters being lifted by the alcohol, showing good medicinal characters with an undercurrent of Mediterranean herbs and dried spices.
The taste is rich and satisfying. Heat from the alcohol is evident but is balanced by fruit and wood ageing. The wine lingers attractively on the finish.
A big complex style that will reward with keeping although it can be enjoy now.
