Winemaker's Notes:

Dark cherry color with a violet-purple rim. Highly aromatic, with aromas of stewed red fruit, hints of burnt chocolate, black pepper and smoky oak. On the palate the attack is fresh, fruity with oak tannins present without overwhelming the fruit. It has moderate acidity with a long, pleasant finish in which the oak can be more clearly perceived.
My Notes:
