Deep in colour with violet highlights. On the nose, intense fruit aromas are accentuated by floral touches. Initially expressive and well-rounded with a concentrated and well-balanced mid-palate. The tannins are silky and fine. A rich, powerful and expressive wine that will continue to develop with time in the cellar.
A blend of 75 % Merlot, 15 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 10 % Malbec
