Intense, deep red color with a touch of purple. The nose offers aromas of red and dark fruit, (redcurrants and blackcurrant), with hints of mint and cedar. The bouquet fills out with notes of vanilla, spices and mocha, characteristic of French oak. This is a dense, complex wine, with good tannic structure, length and full mid palate. Finesse of the tannins gives the wine good length and a soft mouth feel. Deep, aromatic and complex with very appealing intense fruit. Has yet to reach its peak!
