Winemaker Notes

The color is a deep red ruby. On the nose, the exuberant fruit is emphasized with great personality and highlights of ripe cherries, plums, truffles, blackberries and liquorice followed by a surge of black pepper, bay leaf, cloves and nutmeg. The oak blends in harmoniously adding to the wine's complexity with aromas of vanilla, chocolate, coconut, graphite, tobacco, cinnamon and mocha. It possesses an interesting structure with balanced acidity, good volume and a persistent, soft and elegant finish.

Deep ruby. Musky, complex aromas of red berries, smoked meat, rose oil and cured tobacco. Dense and fleshy, displaying ripe red fruit flavors and an exotic note of candied flowers. More tangy on the finish, which shows a slight tart edge to its redcurrant and spice notes.
