“Deep and brilliant ruby red. The nose is intense and rich with a hint of a cigar box. On the palate the dark berries and black cherry stand out. Sapid finish with long gravelly and enveloping tannins, but in perfect balance with the concentration of fruit. Great length, depth and freshness and elegant rather than full-bodied.”
