This is a full-bodied wine that exhibits high-class aromas of black currants, coffee bean, crushed flowers, and hints of dark chocolate. Seamless on the palate, it starts with black fruit flavors, builds on silky tannins, and finishes with notes of vanilla, olives, and licorice. Throughout, it is fresh, elegant and shows bright fruit accompanied with great acidity.
