A cuvée of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot noir that presents with a deep ruby red color. The swirl quickly stops, the walls of the glass turn ruby, and eventually we notice thick, slowly slipping tears.
Its aromas are intense, luxurious. We detect black berries, black currants, amarena cherries, ripe plums and red roses. Soon we notice buttery scents, which are interlaced with perceptions of sweet spices, and the combination reminds us of plum tart. With time, notes of cedar, carob and chocolate express, and the finish reveals a slight touch of eucalyptus and smoke.
The mouthfeel is majestic. We sense softness, alcohols are well integrated into the structure. Its freshness is emphasized indicating its youthful character that is confirmed by velvety tannins. A wine of intensity, accentuated elegance and a vigorous body that pampers us with a long-lasting aftertaste reminiscent of ripe wild berries, sweet spices and chocolate.
A wine that will only evolve its already emphasized elegance over the years. Due to its structure, softness and freshness, it will be an ideal accompaniment to various beef or venison dishes, which we have enriched with demi glace sauce, or various reductions with which we have concentrated flavors.
