Deep dark purple, almost black, in color, with aromas of fresh ripe fruit such as blackberry and blackcurrant a notes of spice, tobacco, and vanilla. This is a medium-bodied, velvety-smooth wine with a pleasing finish. A different wine that amazes the consumer with its first impression.

Technical notes
Upon reaching the cellar, the grapes are cold macerated for 24 hours at 11C (52F).

The juice is racked off its skins part-way through the process, and fermentation continues with clean must. The entire process is aimed at producing wines with plenty of fruit intensity and a soft mouthfeel.

Perfect with spicy foods such as Mexican and Thai, as well as with pork, duck, game meets or cheeses. Best served at 1517C (5963F)
