(2010 Vintage) Ruby red appearance with rich, intense tones. Spicy nose with floral notes and hints of wild berry (red and black), accompanied by mineral impressions and light toasted notes. Spice reappears on the palate, which displays firm but supple tannins, and the finish is vigorous and taut. Overall, the wine is compelling for its flavor-rich mid-palate and supporting acidity.
