Winemaker’s notes:

Deep dark chocolate enticing cedar aromas appear first on the nose followed by wafting notes of blackberry jam, cherry and cassis. The firm, well-structured palate features robust yet sweet tannins and a broad range of flavours ranging from black cherry and red fruits carried along by the richness of its oak and vanilla notes. It is long and smooth now, with an intriguing character that will continue to develop with years to come.


Food suggestions:


Hearty beef dishes such as goulash and stroganoff.
