Dark intense cherry colour, a fruity bouquet with concentrated black berries and licorice aromas, spicy notes with a hint of tobacco, a rich character on the palate, perceptibly woody, a very robust wine, noticeable tannins, moderately juicy, complex berry flavours on the palate, medium concentration with a long finish. A wine to be decanted !
