It is a dark ruby-hued, pleasant, charming, fruit-forward, but superficial effort. There is an absence of tannic strength, and the acidity seems adequate and unobtrusive. This is a pleasant, straightforward, fluid Montrose.
Intense ruby red in colour this wine offers up a nose redolent of blackcurrant, cacao and spiced plum. In the mouth gob-smacking ripe fruit flavours of black cherry, mocha and cinnamon dominate. Ample yet well rounded tannins impart fine structure and an elegant finish.
