Winemaker's Notes:

With a deep, dark violet color, the nose shows aromas of violets, black fruits and a hint of fresh strawberries. The mouth feel is dense, with sweet black fruit flavors and soft tobacco and sweet spice notes from French oak aging. The finish presents marked minerality and lingering flavors.
