This is an opaque red, medium bodied wine with apparent and strong fruit tannins. Initially on the nose, herbal and vegetal and black and green bell pepper aromas are immersed with a some earthy nuances. It is softened by some ripened black fruit with a tone of tobacco and smokiness. On the palate, a combination of black currants and black pepper are balanced with an influence of tobacco and leather. The acidity is medium and has a moderate finish. Overall the palate is mouth coating, has intense character and overall well – structured. Ready to drink.
