Intensely deep ruby red color with violet reflections. Complex fresh berry character with notes of cherries, blueberries and currants, further integrated by the elegant oak spices hinting of coffee and vanilla. Rich fruit, great concentration, complex, with diverse layers of supple tannins. A powerful wine of great elegant stature.
