A lighter red with hints of a rustic orange and purple hue greet the eye upon initial inspection. Bright red fruits including ripe cranberry, cherry and strawberry, orange zest along with a sweet prune appear on the palate. Delicious leathery, musky, black licorice mixture envelopes the nose, followed by light red fruit tart. The acidity is mild but accountable. The barrel influence in the mouth is delicate but noticeable as it adds both tannins and a touch of spice.
