Complete Wine Profile
👀 Deep dark red with purple hues on the ring. Ir shows some thick texture of grape extract. Tears are significant
👃🏼great combination of cherry and tobacco on the nose. Strong oak on the secondary nose.
👅 STRONG TANNINS. What shows on the glass, reflects the palate. Super dry and bold with a long finish. More than medium acidity. Great notes of blueberry, black currant, and plum. The typical taste of french oak and vanilla. Leather and earthy. This one is all about terroir.
