Ripe cherry hues describe the colour. A herbal pot-pourri of oregano, thyme and bay leaf announces the nose. Toasted almond and buttered toast describes the oak. The wine is laced with red fruits, the palate shows a muscular structure composed of balanced acidity and lively, layered tannins. The wine ends robust and meaty which indicates that it has great longevity.

This wine is meant for a choice steak as accompaniment.
