Tasting: This wine is ruby-red with clean glints of brick-red and dense legs which coat the glass. You can find aromas of red fruits and reminders of spices, balanced by smoked aromas from its time in oak barrels which had received a light-to-medium toasting. All of it leads you to a subtle vanilla pod aroma coming through afterwards. This wine probes in mouth to have very good body, is very balanced and velvety with a long and interesting pleasant finish.
