    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Inky deep red with bright violet hints.

    Nose: Expressive red fruit, with fresh notes of rosemary, white pepper and sweet spices. Elegant oak touches with notes of vanilla and subtle nutmeg.

    Palate: Pleasant attack with round and juicy tannins towards the mid palate, finishing with fresh acidity and a long and lasting sensation.

    Food Pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16° C to 18° C (58 to 64° F). Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Full-force aromas of cola and black fruits. Flash with a play toward coffee, blackberry, chocolate and herbs.

    Bright violet. Textbook aromas of dark berries, cherry, dark chocolate and mint. Juicy and tight-grained, even youthfully backward, with a solid structure and restrained sweetness to the flavors of dark cherry, plum, smoky minerals and licorice. Mounts impressively on the back, finishing with suave tannins and an echo of dark chocolate.
