Glass-staining purple. An exotic and highly perfumed bouquet evokes candied dark berries, cherry, licorice, oak spices and potpourri. Pliant, palate-staining dark fruit flavors deliver an intriguing combination of power and energy, picking up spice and floral pastille qualities with air. Very smooth and seamless wine with strong finishing thrust and excellent persistence.
Profound, solid, dense and with a pleasant fruitfulness.
In French oak Bordelaise style barrels for 16 months. Racked every 4 months. Age of the barrels: "1-wine” barrels.
This polished red is like ebony, dark, fine-grained and solid. Powerful yet sleek, with a core of cassis, plum and fig flavors wrapped in toast, licorice, espresso and graphite notes, supported by muscular, well-integrated tannins
