Color: Intense, bright red, violet at the rim.
Nose: Complex, elegant and very intense. The wine shows a perfect combination of fresh red fruit such as black cherries, raspberries and blackberries. Spice touches and licorice hints contribute complexity. The ageing in French oak masterfully integrates subtle vanilla and caramel nuances.
Palate: Full-bodied meaty flavors of black fruits and dried fruits. Good tannin and acidity. The aromas on the palate are harmonious and persistent. It is a balanced, refreshing and very easy-to-drink wine which boasts a lingering finish.

second-use ones and 1⁄3 in third-use ones).
