This is a medium-bodied Bordeaux blend bursting with aromas of raspberry, anise, violet and black cherry. Fragrant and feminine with a core of bright, juicy fruits, it's framed by fine-grained powdery tannins with flavours of raspberry licorice, roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Those patient enough to cellar will reap the rewards, but the wine's red fruits and elegance are on full display and ready to be enjoyed now.
