An elegant wine of deep ruby colour, full-bodied, with a strong and thick texture, mature and well-balanced. Aromas of great quality dominate, with pronounced spiciness. In the glass it still opens up, showing notes of vanilla, smoke, coffee, cinnamon, cloves, as well as raspberry and currant. The taste is dry, warm, and perfectly soft with fine tannins. Liveliness and minerality linger in the aftertaste. It has excellent aging potential.
