Very dark purple ruby, with a vivid pink rim. The aromas seem to leap from the glass, offering up a fragrant spray of sweet berry fruit - noticeably grapey in character, but there is also some ripe blueberry, too. Quite elegant and smooth on the palate, and showing no signs of the alcohol level. Fine structure, with very good acidity, and a massive dose of deep berry fruit. No need to decant, just drink it straight from the bottle.
