Appearance: Deep purple red.
Aromas: Ripe black fruits with spice, combined with chocolate, vanilla and a fine toasty note, which gives an elegant and complex nose.
Flavors: Ripe and soft tannins, with great structure and freshness given by the wine's round tannins and good acidity. The tasteful toasty oak gives this wine the perfect frame for a charming and lingering finish.
Goes very well with sweet-and-sour dishes, home stews, pâtés and duck liver, pasta, chicken and even some oily fish dishes, especially if they include a bit of pepper.
"Savory, ripe, plump, with a palate of black fruit compote. Sweet, lengthy, and long."
The Wine Advocate
"Inky ruby. Fresh blackberry, raspberry, incense and rose on the slightly reduced nose. Firm and refreshingly brisk, offering fresh red and dark berry flavors and a kick of peppery spice. Very young but shows good, energetic fruitiness. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and good persistence."
