Purple in color. The nose is nice and showing a bit of "claret" style. Black raspberries, black cherries, spice, and a bit of black pepper. On the palate, this is fresh and still youthful. A bit jammy but no real alcohol showing despite 16.5%. It does show on the texture and slight warmth on the finish, but not much at all. Drinking well now and a crowd pleaser. Worked with some spicy pizza.
