Tasting notes

It pours an intense ruby red with hues of garnet, with an intense aromatic range: blackcurrant, tobacco, coffee and graphite. This wine has a lingering taste and is warm, powerful, spiced, with balanced and velvet-smooth tannins.

"Underbrush, black plum and balsamic notes lead the nose of this wine. The concentrated palate offers prune, blackberry jam, mocha and licorice flavors alongside assertive but refined tannins. Drink through 2025."  91 points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast (January 2018)
