Clear deep garnet. The unusual varietals produce an attractive, fairly powerful and interesting nose with raisins, dates, stewed fruits and tea accented by a bit of barnyard and some coffee and chocolate aromas. On the palate, though, the flavours are one-dimensional: red berries, mostly sour cherry with a bit of sultana raisin. Good acidity for structure, and a long tannic finish, but the alcohol feels a bit hot. Drink up.
