Noble wine dark ruby color.
Wonderfully balanced wine has a pleasant, rounded taste with silky tannins and well-expressed tones of black berries and fruits. The rich, long aftertaste nuances of toasted bread.
Fresh and clean bouquet of wine aromas of ripe cherries beckons and white flowers, hints of spice.
Wine blends perfectly with salmon and other red fish cooked on the grill, Peking duck or filed in wine sauce with meat dishes with spices. It will also serve as a perfect accompaniment for pheasant, baked with mushrooms and aged French cheeses.
