Fairly deep purple colour. Spicy, fruity, ripe plum nose with some sandalwood notes. Slightly off-dry, medium bodied, very spicy, slightly juicy, plummy-cassis flavours with a tangy, lingering, sandalwood-tinged finish. Versatile and quite ready-to-drink. This blend of Aragonęz, Alicante Bouschet, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah was aged of 6 months in French oak and has 14% alcohol and 4 g/L residual sugar. An entry-level crowd pleaser that is ready-to-drink and might be served slightly chilled. CSPC 306563
