Semi opaque, medium purple in the glass. On the nose I get dark plum jam, espresso bean and blackberries. On the palate it is vibrant with blackberries and orange peel. The mid palate is juicy, with more black fruits and licorice. There is just a smidge of tannins which is fine with me, I’m happy to enjoy primal fruits without a cloying astringency. This fact does however shorten the cellaring capacity to just 5 years in my opinion. 88 points and 3 stars for this $10 quaffer that you can drink til 2025. Salut….
