Elegant while being rich, this is a ripe but structured wine. It shows great berry fruits, firm and dry tannins, all coming together in a tight, complex texture. The flavors, with spice and wood joining the fresh acidity, are melding together well, the final flavors giving rich fruit and vivid freshness together.
