The wine has a brilliant deep garnet color. The nose of this wine is an interesting mix of bright pure fruit; mulberries and blackberries; and heady spicy notes with notes of five spice. There is also a floral undertone. The wine enters the palate with power, bursting with bright red and black fruit notes. There is a broad textured mid palate and a long finish of black pepper spice. The tannins are firm and the wine leaves with a sense of freshness
