Intense ruby red color with garnet reflections. Bouquet is ethereal, wide, light vanilla. Taste is full, soft, velvety and intense, with sensations of liquorice, spices and light goudron note. This wine is particularly suited to accompany red meat, game and aged cheeses. Long aging potential.

Wine SpectatorThe steeped black cherry and plum flavors are shaded by sweet spices in this powerful red. Astringent on the finish and a touch hot in the balance, with fine length. 46,650 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThe wine opens with aromas of oak, espresso, and black plum. The palate delivers stewed plums, blackberries and cherry extract layered with toasted oak, roasted coffee bean and sweet vanilla. This is already accessible so enjoy over the next few years.
