Seductive interplay of a melange of dark fruits and spice on the nose. The seduction continues in the mouth: cassis, blueberry, violet, touches of cedar, cocoa and tobacco leaf. The palate is soft and spicy with a velvety texture and powdery fine tannins. It is simultaneously rich, rounded and refined, softly appealing and structured from sympa-thetic oaking which is harmoniously integrated. Rewarding and long on the finish.
