Purplish-red with violet highlights. Very intense and fruity, with notes of forest fruit, combined with spicy notes such as pink peppercorn, bay leaf, rosemary, black truffle, and subtle aromas of roasted coffee bean imparted by ageing in French oak. Starts off very delicate, refreshing and juicy with well-balanced acidity. The tannins are refined and velvety. Wild fruit aromas follow through to the aftertaste, culminating in a long finish.
Pair this wine alongside spicy beef and vegetable stir-fry, paprika chicken, partridge with mushrooms, vegetable curry.
Extremely aromatic with dried flowers, as well as black-fruit and wet-earth character. Full-bodied and chewy, yet finely textured. Extremely characterful with cloves and other spices. Dry finish. Reserva this year.
