Deep garnet color. Complex nose in which aromas of red and black fruit mix with violet and wood notes. Fat and full-bodied palate with opulent and refined tannins. Very good balance and great aftertaste.
Reaches its prime between 2010-2018.
Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberries and violets. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long finish. Refined.
