Our tasting notes:

Wine with deep ruby ​​colour and some garnet nuance. Nose is pronounced and at the same time delicate yet developing. Flavours are of ripe cherry, plums, dry red fruits, red bell pepper, nutmeg, toast, coffee and touches of earth (forest floor) and leather. In the mouth is dry, medium acidity and medium body. Intensive flavours to find back, ripe and dried fruits, black peppers, nutmeg, smokey toasty notes and leather. Juicy with very good structure and lots of ripe tannins with very smooth long aftertaste. Ready to drink up to 5 years more.
