Appearance: Dark, intense purple with a purplish rim.
Nose: Pleasant aromas of cinammon, liquorice, vanilla and blackberries with a touch of black pepper.
Palate: Fruit forward – plummy, slightly jammy with a spicy, strong peppery finish and good acidity to match. Not overly strong tannins but had sufficient grip to last for awhile.
Comments: Went down quite well with the BBQ mini ribs & potato wedges that I ordered from Al-Fresco’s, one of my favourite ribs take-out/ delivery restaurant in HCMC when I don’t really know what to have for dinner 😛 Drinking well now but can age.
