Tasting Notes:

Color: Deep ruby.
Nose: Pleasant aroma, with a nice mixture of snuff and minerals combined with cherries, citrus and delicious spices.
Palate: It is fresh and remarkably fruity with traces of plum, spices and chocolate. It has a long finish and perfect acidity for aging.
Other: This a bold but also very elegant wine that will pair with a wide variety of wintry dishes; lamb, game, hearty stews, grilled sausages, barbecued meats or duck confit. Also goes well with mature cheddar.
