The wine is dark purple, almost black with purple trim around the edge of the glass.
Gorgeous juicy fruit structure supports well-balanced, full-bodied, complex taste with fine tannins in which the nuances of spices, resins and chocolate frame dense shades of plum. Wine leaves a pleasant long aftertaste.
Elegant aromas of raspberry, cherry and red fruit notes enrich sandalwood, cedar and spices.
Wine harmonises perfectly with meat dishes and mature cheeses.
