A gleaming wine of deep, intense purple red. Its aromas are powerful, with highly expressive exotic fruit derived from the Petit Verdot and a bouquet of spices that are characteristic of Malbec. This mingling of ripe fruit, spices and toasted notes results in a luscious, seductively smooth and superbly balanced wine. Exotic touches of grenadine, notes of violet, but also liquorice, plum and virginia tobacco complete the harmony of a blend that is highly unusual for our region, but eminently gluggable! A must try!
