Tasting notes

Brilliant garnet red in colour flecked through with purple hints. Highly complex on the nose with elegant nuances of exotic oak like sandalwood, giving way to aromas of vanilla, spice, coffee, and sweet peppers, and finally notes of candied cassis. While the oak remains quite prominent due to the wine’s young age, the palate is already quite generous and concentrated. Ripe fruits, dark chocolate, and mocha flavours abound. Powerful and richly textured, showing a lot of elegance and finesse. Excellent balance on the finish.
