Elegant with a good volume, this wine boasts round, very well-achieved ripe tannins, giving it an enveloping body with a long, clean finish that lingers in the mouth.
"Full ruby. Intense, spice-accented aromas of cherry, blackcurrant, cured tobacco and rose oil, with suave vanilla and cracked pepper notes gaining strength with air. Juicy, penetrating red and dark berry flavors are complemented by notes of vanilla bean and licorice, with a spicy quality contributing back-end cut. Closes with very good energy and focus, leaving sweet cherry-cola and smoke notes behind. "
