Full bodied with great concentration of vanilla, mocha, blackberries, sweet spices and clove. The palate is rich and warming with vanilla, more black fruit, plums and cherries, as well as leathery notes. The wine is vibrant and well structured, with powdery, fragrant tannins. A great wine with a fresh finish.
