When you smell it you can note aromas such as licorice, violet, .... It tastes just like wine, as it has to be.
It is an excellent wine.

I opened the bottle for my best friend.
It had an intense colour. Noticeable aromas of cherry and licorice. I liked its acidity.
It is so good that it is best taken alone.
