Dark garnet color. Nose of spicy red and black berries, of earthy notes, leather and some oak. Dense and deep on the palate, the wine is tasty with its mixed berry flavors, leather, spices and oak also there, but well integrated. This wine have the structure to be cellared, but with some air, which is what I did, this is good from now! Excellent (91)
