Full ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry and licorice along with an inky nuance. Juicy and suave, combining a fine-grained texture with an almost chocolatey ripeness. This tactile wine has the density to buffer its very ripe fruit and chewy tannins. (this is the highest in pH here, at 3.5). With a hint of minty lift, the spicy, rising finish excites the taste buds.
