Clear deep garnet. Fresh-smelling nose of cassis and blackberry, some green stems and coffee in the background, opens up in the glass to stewed fruit. Very fruity on the palate: cherry and cranberry flavours with good acidity. Alcohol only 12.5% but noticeable, medium-strength tannins leave a long and drying finish. Drink now, with venison and cranberry sausage and a beet-leaf risotto.
