Vibrant violet in color. The wine really comes alive with a bit of air and aromas of juicy red cherries start out initially and then the nose turns darker shades with fresh black cherries, mulberries and a bit of blackberry with a bit of earthiness and an oregano note. The palate is medium-bodied and persistent, evoking fresh blackberries with a bit of the stems as well. There is a peppery note that comes alive and a notion of Mediterranean herbs. The finish has a saline component and light tannins with thirst-quenching acidity.
