Tasting Notes: Red violet in colour with aromas of strawberry, rose petal, raspberry, black cherry, black pepper, roasted poblano and earth. Cherry, blackberry, raspberry, red currant, black pepper and earthy minerality are framed by silky tannins and fresh acidity. Red berries linger on the spice driven, dry finish.
