From the Wine Maker:
"The color is an intense ruby. Shiny and bright, it offers shades of purple and cherry. Shy and distinguished, the first nose suggests good promises. After aeration, it agrees to gradually deliver its' secrets. The second nose lets the fruit talk: red/black fruits: black currant, blueberry, cherry, blackberry, raspberry. Floral notes of iris, violet, and peony. Plant notes of cedar and mint. Plus spices, such as pepper, cloves, and cinnamon."
