|Tasting note||A sweet red wine made using ultra ripe grapes which shows a combination of both fresh and dried fruit, and preserve flavours. Cherry red in the glass. Rich aromas of cassis, damson, loganberry and prune, supported by brown sugar, spicy wood. Broad palate, for the moment very young, of fresh blackcurrants, wild raspberry, bitter cherry and pronounced minerality.|
