What They Say
The wine is of an iridescent, deep red colour. The nose offers a charming mixture of herbal spices and hints of cherries, as well as bromeliads and wild berries. To taste, the wine contains notes of soft fruits, delicate spice and delicate hints of thyme and herbs. Overall its an elegant, fine wine with a soft structure, velvety tanins and a long finish.
