The wine is an opaque purple-black with a reddish-blue hue. A powerful fusion of layered rhubarb, dark berries and plums merge with aromas of cedar and tobacco. The palate reveals an underlying complexity of black olive, peat and anise. This wine bursts with dense stewed fruit with smooth and supple tannins leading to a long and harmonious finish.
