A medium garnet color in the glass this wine has a heady, high-toned nose of bright cherries and vanilla oak aromas with a hint of anise. In the mouth it is bright, with good acidity and primary flavors of cherry and pomegranate suffused with light tannins. The wine finishes strong and long, very long, tapering off into a sweet note that undoubtedly has again to do with the oak. This is a pretty, refined wine that is pleasant to drink
