Deep red color with brick-red hues. A winy nose with hints of roses, raspberries, a bit vanilla in a perfectly balanced way. The palate is dry with soft tannins, chunky cherries, cinnamon and licorice. Very well balanced with nice length in the finale. To pair with various meat dishes, preferably a steak with a potato gratin.
