Sensory analysis: the wine is an intense ruby red color with olfactory notes of black berry fruit and cherry jam which are accompanied by spicy sensations and a hint of vanilla. The fruity expressions from the nose return in the flavor as the wine is tonic and lively mid-palate with a marked sapidity. The tannins ensure good persistence
