Rubinstein describes it as "visually opaque with a deep brick red hue" and suggests that it is an ideal wine for autumn. She notes the aromatic profile, which includes "rich and dark red and purple fruit, such as plum and rhubarb," complemented by an earthy undertone of "smoky wet moss."

On the palate, Rubinstein finds the wine to be dominated by "rich and ripe dark purple fruit," with additional hints of jasmine and sweet persimmon. The tannins are described as "pleasingly silky and smooth," indicating a well-balanced structure. Rubinstein also mentions that the wine should hold nicely for the next 3-5 years, suggesting a good potential for aging.
