A rich dry wine. Well-balanced, strong and full-bodied with a deep ruby red color. This wine has rich flavours of cedar and blackcurrant. It has the deep flavour of intense fruit and mellow tannins with just a hint of vanilla from the oak. The finish is clean and pleasant and is best matched with spicy foods.
