Winemaker's Notes

Deep red color, almost purple and very vivacious. On the nose , it is very expressive with aromas of ripe dark fruits, and some floral and spicy hints. The oak is perfectly integrated with the fruit and delivers great intensity.

In the mouth, the first thing one notices is the freshness of this wine, resulting from its natural acidity, a product of the terroir from which it originates. It also delivers soft tannins and wonderful balance. The finish is long and consistent.

Cellaring: Can be enjoyed now or cellared for 5 years.

Food pairings: Ideal served with lamb, rabbit, prime rib, stak ou poivre and other meat dishes, but can also be enjoyed on its own.
