(2011 Vintage) A strikingly deep ruby red color, almost inky. A very pronounced smell, aromas of plums and blackberries also a whiff of dark chocolate but it's the fruit that really stands out. Full bodied, bold, rich and velvety, jam packed with fruit, very plummy. Roasted coffee and a taste of good quality rich dark chocolate are all there.
