This wine is a deep purple red color. The nose is a bit shy at first, but after a few swirls it expresses black fruit like cassis, prunes and black currant but also some tobacco and coffee. In the mouth there is a superb explosion of fruit followed by layers and layers of complexity, soft and elegant tannins and the perfect balance between fruit, tannins, and acidity.
