Intense garnet red with light orange reflections. Ripe red fruit and vanilla. After the first couple of years in bottle evolves into hints of leather, tobacco and some small dark fruits. Full-bodied with great structure and elegant tannins, thanks to the time spent in barrel. Aged cheeses, savory dishes, and game. Great even after a meal to spend time thinking about the nuances and aromas in the wine.
Aromas of red cherry, pipe tobacco, menthol and star anise with a whiff of new leather shape the nose of this fragrant, captivating wine. The intense, structured palate doles out raspberry compote, licorice, graphite, crushed mint and a whiff of smoke. It's impeccably balanced, with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity.
