This zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant flavors, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins.

Concentrated aromas of cassis and plum lead to flavours of dark berry fruits, ripe currant and cocoa and a slightly toasty oak. A rich and full-bodied wine that shows well-structured, silky tannins and a long, velvety finish.
A rich, dense ruby color, hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and crème de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.
