An intense red purple. Expressive aromas of soft spices like cinnamon and clove join very ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry etc) and some empyreumatic notes. In the mouth, truffle, mocha and chocolate intermingle harmoniously with the same range of aromas found on the nose, and tight tannins offer good balance. The finish is fresh, persistent, and juicy, characteristic of this altitude terroir.
