Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Medium red. Cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by sexy oak spices, rose and licorice. Fresh and nervy, with vivid red fruit flavors, silky texture and slow-building sweetness. The long finish leaves a strong note of vanilla behind.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) It is a sophisticated elegant wine. Beautiful ruby red color, Intense cassis, strawberry flavors, with combined hints of black cherries and chocolate. Oak is not predominant but well combined and still present in the background in order to keep the fruit as a principal character of this wine. Solid and ripe tannins but with 2 years of aging already soft and friendly. An outstanding wine for bottle aging (5-10 years).
