It gives a very deep garnet purple color and pronounced blackberry and blackcurrant notes with some chocolate, mint and Mediterranean herbs. The concentrated, full bodied palate is well structured with high acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long and fruity.
The nose shows sweet plum, cherry and strawberry notes on the nose with abundant aniseed aromas reflected on the palate. The bold, fruit driven palate is supported by cedar and vanillin oak characters. The fine silky tannins add to the wine’s complexity and long lingering, sweet flavors on the finish.
Vineyard parcels were fermented separately in small, upright static and roto fermenters. The wine was pressed off the skins, racked and then aged in oak barrels.
