It appears an intense, near-opaque purple-red. Well-ripened fruit enriches the bouquet, such as dried plum, blackberry, blackcurrant, and blueberry, lifted by notes of candied fruit, chocolate, vanilla, and roasted hazelnut. It opens in the mouth to perfectly integrated tannins, balanced by an appropriate level of alcohol and a judicious acidity. The aromatic finish lingers beautifully. Perfect partner to grilled or stewed meats, wild game, and medium- and long-aged cheeses.

Fill the glass one-third full, then hold the glass at an angle against a white background to bring out all its colours. Swirl the wine slowly, stop, calmly breathe in the aromas. Then slowly swirl the wine again, and breathe in, at various moments.
Sip the wine, keeping some of it in our mouth so that the taste buds and palate can capture all the flavours, intensity, and fragrances.
