The color is a deep red with purple highlights. The nose offers vanilla, black cherry and plum, with warm spices and dry herbs. The wine is sleek and elegant with good acidity and full mouthfeel. Flavors of strawberry, blackberry, pomegrante and cassis are complemented by vanilla and spice. The wine has a long finish with soft tannins and toasty oak.
