Intense aromas of raspberry, red cherry, plum and red currant. The oak adds hints of vanilla, coffee and tobacco. In the palate, different layers of flavors; at the front, it starts with bright red fruit and spices; in the mid palate, the fruit and meaty flavors open up; at last, it has a long lasting finish with balanced tannins and leather notes. Recommended foods: grilled meats, lamb chops, steaks and hearty foods.

Wine EnthusiastSweet on the nose, with licorice and black pepper dust along with ripe black fruit aromas. The palate is deep and pure, with black fruit flavors and a slightly syrupy underbelly. Burns a little on the finish, with spice and fig flavors providing depth and character. 416 cases produced.

Wine SpectatorToasty and lightly firm, with a cocoa frame holding sway over softening plum and cherry skin notes. Drink now.
