Appearance: A dense, brilliant silky crimson.
Bouquet: Powerful, rich and complex; cassis, raspberry and redcurrant with a touch of vanilla providing an ample backdrop, enhanced by smoky and cedar-wood hints on swirling.
Palate: Frank, almost supple in the attack with aromas of summer fruits. Then develops towards greater fullness and structure, showing great potential, maturity and fruit. The black-fruit notes mellow into a powerful, long-lasting toasted impression. Good length.
