International Wine CellarPretty, light ruby. Perfumed, floral aromas of red cherry and delicate tobacco show only mild intensity but are enlivened by a subtle citrus-minty note. Fresh flavors of red cherry and mint are prominent on the palate as well, with complicating notes of raspberry and licorice. Not particularly complex or long but a real charmer, with bright acids nicely framing robust tannins on the finish.
