Winemaker's Notes:

A very dense, high intensity garnet red wine with violet hues and overtones. Very open on the nose, its outstanding aromatic intensity is clean, refined, elegant and complex with a fruity and spicy character. Soft, elegant, well-ensembled notes of wood with menthol and balsamic aromas. This is a very expressive, powerful wine with a long, profound, frank finish on the palate. Quite meaty, generous in alcohol, and with a very fresh and firm acidity, it displays ripe, sweet, smooth and velvety tannins. A powerful and expressive combination with perfect balance.
My Notes:
