Cherry colored, clear and brilliant, with purple reflections.
The first bouquet is intense with notes of pepper, clove, vanilla, toast and
forest fruits with further hints of blackcurrant, morello cherry, spice and
coffee. There are secondary aromas of menthol and spice with hints of leather
The wine is full and round on the palate with balance and length. The tannins
are generous and rich and the oak is well-integrated with the fruit. The
Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety on the front palate but gives way
to the Syrah in the finish.
