Winemaker's Notes

Dark in color, this wine is very complex, rich, long and fat. It displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, lackcurrants, cherries), jam and cooked fruits, as well as smoky scents (peat) and spicy perfumes (cinnamon, thyme). This wine is round, rich and long-lasting and velvety on the palate, with mature tannins on the finish. It is an attractive, well-balanced, easy-drinking wine.

It is a perfect match for traditional dishes or spicy food: stuffed tomatoes, lentils with salt pork, steak, chicken with ratatouille.
