Ruby red in color with garnet reflexes. On the nose, the wine has beautiful aromas of cherry, mature plum and licorice. The taste has good correspondence with the nose showing those same flavors of cherry and plum. The tannins are very soft and the wine has well-balanced acidity with a persistent finish.
