The wine is dark red colour with rich extracts and multi-layer flavours, reminiscent of violets, blackberries and blueberries with discrete notes of pepper. On taste, it is very luscious and balanced with soft tannins. Pleasant fruity notes of blackberries and black currants stand out in the aftertaste, complemented with mild,vanilla notes in the background.
