      Intense and deep ruby with violet hues. Intense and expressive on the nose with peppery notes, violet aromas, and ripe black fruits. Powerful in its youth, this wine is full, supple and well-balanced with firm, silky tannins that lead to an elegant, beautiful finish. Delicious with beef rib and savory lamb dishes.. Aging potential of fifteen to twenty years.
