Scents of iris, violets and heather accompany red fruits such as black cherry and currant with a persistent note of fresh and crunchy plums. In the mouth this wine is sapid, pleasant to drink with firm tannins that do not flag but render the wine flavourful and ample in its finish with fruity echoes.
