Very sustained, deep, very bright garnet red color with purple reflections.
The nose is open, expressive and complex with notes of very ripe black fruits (elderberry, blackberries), but also with hints of spice (pepper, garrigue).
The mouth offers a nice attack, firm but silky tannins where we find dominant spicy aromatic notes, lots of fat, good length, very airy finish.
