Tasting note: Color: Ruby red with garnet hues. Aroma: Intense aromas of ripe plums, cassis, and maraschino cherry with notes of incense, cocoa, sweet tobacco, and spicy black pepper. The palate is full-bodied with an elegant and complex structure. The tannins are persistent and pronounced yet rich and smooth. Very well balanced with red fruit, chocolate, and sweet tobacco on the long finish.
