- Taste guide: Full bodied, deep garnet in colour with a bright red hue, this wine has a rich and varied bouquet of blackberry, ripe plum with hints of vanilla. The palate is rich and dense, with flavours of black cherry, vanilla, and smooth tannins that linger on the finish. The wine is aged for 18 months in a combination of new and old French and American oak barrels to enhance the complex flavors and give it a smooth and mellow finish.
- Food match: It is a perfect accompaniment to chargrilled red meats and hearty Italian dishes.
