Clear, dark ruby red in the glass. Clean, medium intensity aromas of blackberry and spice. Dry, medium acidity and easy tannins; medium-plus body. Straightforward but appealing slightly sweet blackberry, with hints of black pepper and liquorice. 14.5% alcohol but doesn’t show it as much as might be expected. Overall good.
A gift from my (Aussie) father: $29 at Kits Wine. See Penfolds.
Drinking this with Tempeh “Steaks” from Big Vegan.
