Colour Fairly deep ruby red.
Aroma Complex and lingering with fruity notes (small fruits like raspberry and blueberry in particular) accompanied by pleasant spicy and grassy scents (green pepper) consistent with the varietal characteristics.
Flavour Full, plush, pleasing to drink. It has a pleasantly tart aftertaste and flavours that linger in the mouth.
