The wine is full, rich and powerful on the palate with notes of wood and
black fruit. The wood component is apparent without being aggressive and
combines perfectly with the fruit. The finish is sustained and powerful.
A brilliant clear purple, with silver highlights.
The first bouquet is expressive with a good intensity. Complex, it
reveals notes of smokiness, vanilla and coffee that subtly combine
with pronounced notes of blackcurrant and black cherries. The wood
gives way to notes of licorice, pepper and curry.
