Purple in color. The nose is great with black cherries, slight cola and a bit of roasted herbs. On the palate, this has a great texture. Black cherry fruit. Very clean. Still not yet at maturity, it may still have some upside. Good balance with nice acidity. Would work great with steakfish or fowl. Rhys started commercially in 2004 and there wines have gotten better over time, but even the earlier ones seem to age quite well.
