Wine Tasting: Superb appearance.
Color – Dense black color, deep purple at the rim.
Nose – Powerful and deep, combining black fruits, oak, and notes of mint and fresh spices.
Mouth – Fleshy fruit on the palate, a rich, concentrated wine built on tight tannins which ensure its long ageing potential. Very nice freshness on the finish bringing balance and length to the wine. A magnificent wine for laying down.
