Vivid ruby red color and good concentration. Intense fragrant aroma with evident fruity notes among which are wild black cherry, violet and vanilla. Full bodied and well balanced sip with silky tannins and a long tasty finish. Will pair beautifully with grilled meats, roasted white meats and medium aged cheeses.
