Appearance: dark ruby
Aroma: currants and forest floor
Palate: sweet cherry with quite dense palate touch but maintaining silkiness. also shows sweet spices as well as little touch of herbs, florals, and cinnamon. soft tannins and quite well structured acidity and balance. medium length on the finish.

Not a particular touchy wine but this is a good one for table wine for me. It should go pretty well with flavourful dishes and should be enjoyable during the next few years. A good value for money indeed.
