Additional Information

Ample and complex, it immediately expresses a range of red fruit (black cherry, bilberry) with elegant notes of cocoa and sweet spices. The aromas are very long and harmonious. On the palate, the wine has a powerful structure with good concentration and freshness of fruit. Fragrant acidity and dense, mature tannins develop, as the wine ends with a long-lasting finish.

    "Delicate spice and smoke notes wind through the flavors of baked plum, dried fig and tobacco in this full-bodied red, with dense tannins that are pleasingly plush in texture. Offers a lingering, savory finish. Best after 2020."
