A deep ruby color, aromas that suggest pronounced fruitiness and elements of spice, leather, smoke and talk about the potential of wine and a perfect fit. The only way to describe this wine is by using the word “muscular” but meant in a positive way. Intriguing aromas, seems to show the meatiness of Merlot but also the rawer meat characters of Syrah. Very fresh acidity, great flavour; firm but balanced tannins. Magnificent. It is necessary to decant the wine which is best served in Bordeaux stlye glass.
