The wine is a deeper, ruby red color with a dense texture that leaves slowly creeping, colored tears along the walls.

The bouquet is intense, inviting. We sense ripe cherries, plums, violets, red roses, a gentle note of cocoa butter, flaky dough, we also notice wood, anise, carob, and the finish is marked by roasted nuts.

The palate is soft and perceptibly warm, soon the perceptions are upgraded by youthful freshness, and slowly rounding tannins, which reflect gradually in a dosed manner. The taste is elegant and refined. Its body is full and has a long, refined persistence in which we again perceive fruitiness and spices.

A wine that is caressing our palate even a minute or more after tasting!

A Merlot, which I would be happy to enjoy with roast-beef, infused over butter and herbs, accompanied by crispy young potatoes, or with complex haut-cuisine plates with a stronger sauce.
