This Old World-style blend comes across medium in body, with an emphasis on dry red fruits. The nose is earthy and a touch leafy smelling, with vanilla shadings and lots of plum and berry. In the mouth, it's crisp and focused given its age, with raspberry, plum and strawberry flavors. A light finish with fading cherry notes is a good close. Drink through 2014.
