This wine makes a strong impression on the palate, with a burst of fruity and roasted flavours that give way to a creamy and smooth texture and well-balanced tannins and acidity. The aftertaste lingers with the sweetness of black fruit, such as blackberries and plums. The wood adds a touch of toastiness, smokiness and spice from the French oak ageing, as well as hints of roasted cocoa. This wine is powerful and structured yet elegant and complex. It pairs well with grilled meats, stews, game dishes and chocolate desserts.
