Tasting note

LOOK: Deep bright cherry red with violet highlights. Youthful.

AROMA & PALATE: A very pronounced nose with dominant fruit aromas hints of licorice rounded with notes of vanilla from the American oak. Smooth on the palate with a long and elegant finish that highlight the perfect balance between high-quality oak and ripe, explosive fruit.

Food pairing

Ideal with stews, cured meats and Mediterranean-style grilled meats.
