Winemaker's Notes

It has a spectacular red cherry color with a garnet rim. Complex on the nose, with fine notes provided by the oak aging, such as spices and cocoa; and subtle fruit liquor aromas. Rounded, tasty, potent in mouth, displaying ripe tannins. Very long aftertaste.

This wine is a great match with grilled and stewed meat. It also goes well with oven-baked fish or fish in sauce, as well as cold meats and strong, dry cheeses.
