Fresh and elegant, this medium-bodied red shows ample red fruit and notes of violet and savory herbs with a streak of balanced acids and minerality. Fine-grained tannins lend structure to the lingering and pleasant finish.
ruby colour with hint browning. deep dark aromas of brown spice. light to medium body. smooth initially with lovely fresh mid palate that then kicks I. with lovely red fruits (slightly cranberry) followed by well integrated tannins, hint vanilla and good long finish. very complete wine.
excellent, full bodied without being heavy. great finish, light on the tongue.
