Dark purple in the glass, this wine has a clean nose of ripe summer cherry. It is easy on entry with slowly building tannins and flavors of woodland fruits: lingonberry, black pepper and eucalyptus. As the tannins crescendo they are ever-so-slightly stiff, but are soon overtaken by a burst of acidity that is punctuated by pleasing notes of juniper berry and iodine.
