Ruby red with purple hues. A lifted and aromatic wine with notes of red cherry, strawberry, mulberry, nutmeg and complex earthy undertones. The palate is soft and generous, layered with cherry, mulberry, rhubarb and hints of cinnamon and spice. An approachable and versatile wine with a sweet mid-palate, well-balanced acid and gentle tannins.
