TASTING NOTES:
Magnificent intense purple color, nearly black. Multi-layered bouquet of wild and domestic fruits enriched by hints of vanilla, flowers, anise, tobacco and mocha. Great purity and intensity. Generous, rich, concentrated flavor. Remarkable length with lingering subtleties. A fusion of power and perfect harmony.
