Streamlined and taut, with cranberry and cinnamon notes lifted by piquant acidity. The finish shows mildly drying tannins and lingers on the palate for half a minute. Good on its own, and better with food.

Blackberries, cherry, and licorice in the nose. Beautifully balanced medium body and tannins.
