The wine is dark ruby color.
Elegant, beautifully balanced wine with low acidity, silky, full, rich and luscious taste that reveals hints of ripe dark fruit and vanilla. The wine has a long, fresh, interesting aftertaste.
Warm, mature, multi-faceted, fruity flavor of the wine is woven from the nuances of blackberry, ripe currants, cherries, leather, tobacco, wood and subtle shades of spices.
The wine goes well with meats, game, stews, poultry, grilled red meats, pates and cheeses.
Ageing potential of wine is about 35 years.
