Generous wine,in all the terms by combining sweet to strength and fullness to power. We can find a real pot-pourri of fruity aromas ( blackcurrant, Morello cherry, raspberry, cherry and strawberry). A very tasted matter, silky and well ripe tannins. Flavours of blackberry and cinnamon, overtones of toasting and peanut beans vanilla flavoured at the end.

Quite a sweet and creamy red fruit character on the palate, with some subtle notes of blackberry beneath. A round and juicy wine, built for the now rather than several years down the line.
