A dark garnet hue sits in the glass with immediate aromas of ripe cassis and blackberry. Hints of cocoa, new oak and fir complement the juicy fruit me´lange. A full-bodied entry is succeeded by a mid-palate of dark fruits and a smooth, integrated minerality. The tannins are well developed, allowing the wine to finish with length.

Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with ripe blackberry layers, framed by velvety tannins and a lively line, finishing long and fragrant. 29,674 cases were made.
