The wine is ruby red color with garnet reflections.
The bouquet is elegant, showing raspberry and cherry with notes of sweet herbs, lavender and raw wood.
In terms of taste, it’s medium bodied and includes refreshing revealing mouthwatering cranberry, subtle sweet tobacco and hints of rock minerals. The tannins are soft and polished with a lingering crisp finish.
