Very intense hue with glimmers of black. Explosive, ripe aromas: jammy, crushed strawberries, blackberries followed by wonderfully complex spicy overtones. The wine shows an interesting tautness on the palate with lovely lively acidity and a full, supple character. The tannins are silky and elegant. This wine is very seductive and will delight fans of powerful yet elegant wines.
