Dark deep reddish purple with garnet hues. A subtle nose but clear aromas of coffee and dark chocolate, the wine smells like Tiramisu in a glass. A touch of wood on the palate, a wine of medium bodied with silky tannins and a pleasant mouth feel and a subtle finish, very fresh, and fruity. Great value for money at £5.50. Impressive. (SN 12/07)
