Intense, brilliant ruby red, with purplish reflections. The bouquet jumps out of the glass, almost overwhelming in its intensity. Toasted aromas of vanilla, tobacco and coffee. Floral notes evolve over several minutes, meshing with the other components; cherry, myrtle and strawberry blend beautifully in ample, persistent complexity. The palate exhibits both remarkable, finesse and structure; full and complex, its tannins are sweet and mellow, its texture pleasingly silky. The delicate acidity and sweet polyphenols are in total synergy, supporting the wine’s notable structure. Its magnitude and body enhances red fruit aromas and nuances of tobacco, vanilla and leather.
Excellent as meditating wine.
