Written Notes

Dark purple colour with violet hue and black core. Aroma reminiscent of blackcurrants, ripe blackberries and hints of blackcurrant spurs. Elegant toasting and mild spices in the background. On the palate well balanced with elegant character, very good length, fine fruit and discreet spiciness, polished tannins. A wine with freshness and succulent character.
