A highly-intense ruby color with an enviable shine. Impressively complex nose with a bouquet that ranges from licorice and quina to balsamic notes, and with spicy hints of prune and cherry. Definitely pleasant. Silky on the palate, dense without being too concentrated, and with wonderfully-balanced alcohol and acidity. A crescendo of flavors in the lovely, long finish.
Meditation wine (also on its own). wild boar stew, baked stuffed vegetables.
