Color: light red Nose: stunning, earthiness, lovely, leather, a very comforting old style nose, a 5 star nose Palate: very distinct taste of tangy red fruits, would say drink up but not over the hill, very acidic, fruits are almost gone, the nose is much better then the palate, I don't think this was a bottle firing on all cylinders, after the nose the palate is a bit of a let down
