"Varietal - almost pungent with aromas of fresh raspberry and tart cherries, dark red apple skin and brown baking spices and toasty barrel. Tense, youthful and dry on the palate with flavours that exactly match the nose. Firm, textured tannins, medium ++ acidity, youthful, vibrant, lengthy and dry. A lovely wine, well made and ready."
