Color: Intense ruby red color
Nose: The bouquet is intense, rich, with hints of mixed berries with vanilla aroma, as well as shades of chocolate, coffee beans, and licorice.
Taste: Vigorous and robust, well-structured, full-bodied and balanced. An intense and complex taste with powerful tannins, and a pre-long after-taste that amplifies its elegance. Oily with marked aromas of black fruit, ripe plum, cassis and blackberry.
It is perfect with fine first courses but also goes well with grilled meats and stews; one can even pair it with aged cheese and liver pâté.
As a teaser, try it with a piece of dark chocolate and a cigar.
