International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Medium ruby. Initially a touch volatile, but quickly shaped up to display fresh raspberry and cherry aromas, with complicating notes of suave mocha and cracked pepper. Pliant red fruit preserve flavors are brightened by peppery spices, with no obvious tannins. Finishes with lively acidity and earthy red berry character. Intriguing and very Old World in style, offering good complexity for the price.
