Description and tasting notes
A vibrant red wine with fine perfumed aromas of ripe blackberries and a hint of spice. The palate is wonderfully fresh and opulent, with flavors of cherry, some cedar, rose and hints of vanilla. A complex wine with present tannin's that advance to a balanced elegant structure with a subtle mineral note.
This wine has won the IWSC silver medal for 2014.
