Medium to deep garnet-purple colored.
A very fine, quite sophisticated and pure bouquet with black cherries, cedar and violet aromas, perfumed and sensual.
The palate is medium-bodied with supple, rounded tannin that is cloaked by layers of tobacco-tinged black fruit that segues into a long, lightly spiced finish.
12 months in 25% French new oak.
At its best with lamb, red meats, cheese, truffle and chocolate.
