Brilliant red colour. This wine has a slightly spicy nose with hints of balsa wood as well as citrus notes. A soft lively fruitiness on the palate along with mellow tannins leaves a velvety finish in the mouth. It is often referred to as the chameleon of varietals. As a young wine it exhibits simple red fruit flavors such as cherry, strawberry and raspberry. As it matures it takes on a surprising complexity, with aromas of chocolate, venison, figs, prunes, truffles, violets and even a touch of smokiness.
