A very pretty copper color, just faintly tinged with pink. It's a sensuous, spicy wine with forward, pretty aromas of strawberry, raspberry and sweet cherry. It doesn't fade in the mouth; there is real concentration here all the way through. It actually seems to build intensity as it sails into the long, graceful finish.
