Winemaker's Notes

Red with a pale purplish-violet hue which is darker at the heart of the bulb and red at the rim.

Aroma of fresh fruit mingling with the subtle fragrance of the oak.

On the palate, the general sensation is of smoothness, evolving gently towards the back of the palate with a moderately sharp bite and, below the tongue, this same sensation is combined with caramel.
