An intense garnet color even up to deep purple. 15% alcohol.

A decent wine, affordable, powerful, heavy tannins and rough still at this moment, need some evolution in the bottle perhaps in the next couple years,

An fruity aromas with some evolution and complexity, where the ripe wild berries (blackberries and raspberries) with chocolate and vanilla notes are evident. Soft, very soft, notes of smoke suggested by wood. Persistent end.

Pleasant and suitable for greasy and complex gourmet dishes.
