In the glass, some fragrant vanilla and nutmeg spice wraps around cherry and raspberry fruit enhanced with liquorice, fennel and earth. That gentle oak provides a fleshy backdrop to the fresh, ripe cherry on the finish. A wine that you can enjoy with orwithout food, but will definitely win friends.
