Modest red, with some purple tone. Subdued on the nose, very herbal mixed with the sweet smell of rotting fruit. Medium-bodied, with baked red fruit on the palate and a nice balancing acidity. Gentle tannins, ripe fruit mix nicely. Acidic bramble fruit make a bold statement on the aftertaste before giving way to a lingering dry cocoa finish. A very enjoyable ruby reserve. 85/100. 05-Jan-13. Pop 'n' pour.
