Red Carolina is of medium-strong garnet red colour. It has an elegant smell; it is matured, with a distinctive smell of cherries and cherry jam. In the mouth the wine is dry, tasty, with fine ripe tannins. The wine is strong, with the flavour of pepper, exotic spices, and chocolate, maturing in the wood. A very complex vine with long after taste and long life.
