Beautiful ruby color, lively and intense, with violet hues on the surface. The nose is reminiscent of cooked prune and candied cherry, toasty and smoky. The palate is round and fleshy, with a good volume with ripe and velvety tannins that persist pleasantly in the finish on flavors of jammy and woody fruits.
