This vintage is an absolute classic - it is full bodied and rich. The color is a rich and vibrant dark purple. Aromas of black forest fruits, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavors of olum, chocolate, and spice.
Deep crimson, purple hue; a bright and fragrant wine, showing blackberry, licorice, toasty oak and violets on the bouquet; the medium-bodied palate is lively and super fresh, accessible and thoroughly engaging, offering very good value in every respect.
