Medium deep bright red right to the edge. Chocolatey nose, quite elegant and complex; some sweet cherry and a touch of plum. Palate a touch thin after the nose; good character and pinot fruit with some lovely florals; smooth tannins. Lovely moreish finish. Not a big wine but very elegant and full of flavour.
