A pretty red color with ruby-red highlights. Expressive on the nose, with a broad range of aromas that denote tremendous complexity, featuring red fruit such as cherry, cassis, and raspberry, subtler notes of red currant, tobacco, and hazelnuts, and some balsamic tones. Voluptuous on the palate, this wine features extremely fine, firm, and sweet tannins along with bitter chocolate, cherries, and sweet spice flavors. Its outstanding acidity gives the wine a youthful, refreshing feeling, which presages an excellent cellaring potential.
"Although this blend smells a bit loamy and earthy, there’s plum, cherry and cinnamon aromas that are frontal in their attack. The palate is serious and tight, with medium-strength tannins and flavors of baked berry, spice and coffee. On the finish, pepper and olive notes enter the frame. Cellar Selection."
