Rich in anthocyanins and has velvety and finely extracted tannins. There is a freshness on the palate and perfect balance. The wines are very aromatic, with notes of red berries, menthol and licorice, and a marked mineral character. A long finish, fruity and fresh.
International Wine CellarBright medium ruby. Superripe, porty aromas of blueberry, espresso and licorice. Deep, sexy and sweet, with very ripe, densely packed flavors of crushed dark berries, licorice and spicy oak. Finishes with ripe, chewy tannins and sweet fruit. Not a subtle wine but offers a lot of flavor-not to mention considerable immediate appeal.
