Bright, clean, intense deep red with a ruby-coloured backdrop.
Aromatically very complex: ripe, jammy fruits, fine spices, dried fruit and nuts... perfectly arranged with the oak flavours from the barrel-ageing.
Powerful and well balanced, slightly fleshy feel of velvet. The tannins make themselves known, providing a pleasant and elegant arrangement. A long intense finish.awards Tech. specs
