Opaque ruby. Alluring aromas of cassis, cherry compote, Indian spices, iron and graphite, with a vanilla nuance that builds with air. A deep, youthfully structured wine that offers sweet red and dark fruit flavors laced with mocha, cola and vanilla. Concentrated and fleshy but comes across as lively, finishing with very good lift and vibrancy.
