This wine shows a wonderful, intense ruby color. The powerful yet harmonious nose reveals fresh crushed berries, cola, anis, strawberry essence, creamy and silky aromas combined with licorice. The bouquet is an invitation to taste and the wine does not disappoint. The attack is dense with a soft texture and layers of fruit. It expresses the finesse and harmony of a "grand vin". The finish is vibrant, velvety, and long, with chewy tannins and intense ripe black fruit. This is a complete, balanced wine that reflects the power and beauty of the steep hillside vineyard site.
