Dusty black cherry transparent core moving to a medium dark pink rim. On the nose there is a mélange of anise (black licorice), burnt cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. On the palate the wine is dry, light bodied with medium tannins and mouth-watering acidity. The flavors are of low intensity such as nutmeg and cloves with a slight hint of black cherry fruit skins. The finish is clean with spicies as above along with hints of black cherry or blueberry.
