Tasting Notes: Ripe, deep aromas of black berries fruit and cassis, noticeable minerality with a touch of licorice and violet notes. Concentrated and flavoursome, warm, ripe fruit characters with licorice notes. Well integrated oak with firm tannins. Long and warming finish.
Note: It is recommended to decant. This wine will keep very well during the next 12- 14 years and will gain with the time in bottle.
