The intense red tawny color with shades of brick, typical of this style of aged yet youthful wine, anticipates the elegant and complex aroma, combining ripe fruit, jam and nuts, with hints of vanilla and raisins. In the mouth, a most flavoursome wine, full-bodied and appealing, with a persistent finish. Is delicious served slightly chilled on its own and a surprising accompaniment to a rich appetizer or a strong blue cheese. It is also a perfect match to rich desserts from a tarte tatin, to custards, ice-cream, pudding with figs, nuts and raisins.
Wine EnthusiastThis has a fine bite, offering its richness on the edge of a knife. Wood and fruit tannins are very evident, giving the concentration a dry, fresh core, over which dried fruit flavors pass. It has some age to it, as if there are older wines in the blend.
