It displays a deep, dark color with black cherry tones and a spicy, floral bouquet. The nose reveals an explosion of red berry fruit aromas. Balsamic, toasty notes also come through, brought by 17 months’ aging in new French oak barrels.
Smooth and elegant on the palate, this wine is amazingly expressive as well as powerful and very well balanced, followed by a lingering finish. Previous vintage years have earned up to 94 points in the American magazine Wine Spectator and won several gold medals in international competitions. It’s a wine full of pleasant surprises
