This deep ruby wine has a lovely black fruit (blackberry, cherry, raspberry) nose. Full and fleshy on the palate, it presents dominant red fruit and sweet spice (cinnamon, vanilla) aromas. The tanins are velvety and leave a sensation of softness. The finish is persistent with a hint of vanilla and subtle roasted notes.
