Intense ruby red verging on garnet as it ages.
Deep lingering scents of pulpy fruit such as blackberries, blackcurrant and cherries along with a hint of licorice and graphite. Slight balsamic nuances complete the complex and persistent aromatic bouquet
Austere and elegant, of strong impact and great follow-through. A still and decisive character marked by fine,
smooth and corpulent tannins. Pleasant lingering fruity finish.
