A touch scratchy on the bouquet, with a red berry aroma and a wild herb note. It feels fresh and decidedly “red” in style, with red plum and red currant flavors. More easygoing than brooding, this finishes light. Drink now through 2015.
Minty and prickly on first take, with plum, herbs and jamminess to the nose. The palate is good but basic, with juicy acids, firm tannins and candied flavors of berry fruits. Finishes sweet and consistent, with a youthful, almost juvenile character.
