A touch of ruby lingers in the predominant garnet hue.
The aroma is dominated by dark fruits, with notes of blackberry, American cherry, cassis, and black plum. There's a hint of spice and subtle nuances of cream, toasted bread, fig, tobacco leaves, and bitter chocolate.
The bottle aging has softened the tannins, making them rounder, yet there's still a firm acidity, creating a well-balanced and easy-to-enjoy character. As you take the first sip, the tannins make their presence felt, but by the time it glides down your throat, there's a gentle lingering sensation, wrapping the palate in a comforting embrace.
