Light in color, with a candied, red fruit nose that’s sweet and not very oaky. The palate is juicy but simple, with flavors of herbal raspberry and spice. Not overly complex but good due to its fresh, floral outlook.
Big in color, with meaty, rubbery aromas that seem reduced and gaseous. The palate is black and toasty, but sort of rubbery. Burnt toast, black coffee and some bitterness control the finish. More colorful and big than flavorful and complete.
