Deep cherry-red in colour. Aromas of macerated fruit, aromatic herbs, bread and figs. Complex palate with flavours of ripe red fruits, raisins, tobacco and licorice. Well balanced with smooth tannins from both the grape and the French oak. Shows excellent weight with a long and smooth finish. Very versatile, it goes with many dishes including grilled vegetables, many types of meat dishes, stews and elaborate dishes. Ideal for chocolate-based desserts.
