Medium red. Lively aromas - red fruits, dried rose, menthol, minerals. Sweeter and more pliant than normal with ripe, almost burgundian red fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with finer tannins than the regular bottling and lovely persistence.

"A lovely expression of cherry and plum marks this round, spice- and underbrush-tinged red. The sweet fruit gives way to firm tannins as this picks up power and stamina on the lingering finish."
