Color - dark red, some purple. Nose - Blackberry-prune aroma here, with a toffee ease in it, a little crunchy spice: this is a wide and solid nose. Palate - mild fruit, is easy textured and offers mid-palate pleasure. It takes on a note of late tannin which bolsters the finish, adds tar. Wine for la table that can go on, comes with fair style in the fruit. Has integrated its tannins well.
