Winemaker's Notes:

Exceptional purple color. In the nose, the aromas are dominated by red plums, morello cherries, figs, dried apricots and a delicate perfume of violets. All this is harmonized with its oak ageing, which grants it elegant notes of vanilla, chocolate, toast and caramel. This is a full-bodied wine of great structure and concentration. Its excellent balance between acidity and rounded ripe tannins results in a wine with personality. It has a pleasant and lingering finish. Serving suggestions: 61°F. Ideal to pair with succulent and spiced red meats.
