Description

Brilliant, very dark ruby red colour with beautiful purplish highlights.

Powerful, rich and spicy bouquet of very ripe red and black fruit (cherry, blackcurrant), as well as a touch of vanilla.

The wine starts out very round on the palate. It is full-bodied, rich, powerful, and in no way heavy. The tannin is quite smooth. The freshness and spiciness of the nose come through in the flavour. The wine is altogether beautifully balanced and elegant. Ideal with duck or lamb.
