The wine has a deep, carmine and garnet hue. It has aromas and flavours suggestive of blackberries, raspberries, purple plums, vanilla pod, cigar-box and liquorice. On the palate there is a dense core of bright, ripe, mouth-filling fruit which is supported by an ample framework of fine grained physiologically mature tannins. It is robust and muscular, but at the same time plush and velvety. The flavoursome textures linger on the palate long after swallowing blending into a harmonious after-taste.
