Medium to deep red colour with tints of brick as well as purple, the bouquet very stemmy, earthy and root-vegetable dominant. Potatoes and parsnips. Hints of Campari. It turns chaffy with airing. It's a very whole-bunchy wine, more about vegetable aromas and flavours than fruit. Medium to full-bodied and savoury, with measured tannins and a drying finish. It's a style to polarise tasters. More enjoyable as a drink than in an analytical tasting. Quite delicious.
