A rich, fruity and fully flavoured nose. On the palate it is smooth and mellow with a full, elegant, savoury character and a persistent, finely grained array of well integrated tannins, excellent balance and a firm, persistent finish.
Impenetrable ruby red colour with purple tints. On the nose there are spicy fragrances of coffee, black pepper, liquorice and tobacco. The palate is fruits of the forest, vanilla and mineral aromas, and strong but developed tannins.
