In the glass, the wine shows colors of red garnet accompanied by a bouquet of cherries, menthol, and a hint of rosemary. On the palate, the wine is round and rich without being overpowering. It is spicy on the mid-palate and lively on the back end, with flavors of black currant, licorice, and coffee, followed by a long-lasting finish that is slightly minty and boasts a juicy mouth-watering sensation.
