The bouquet is bursting with dark fruits and roasted nuts, with aromas of fresh black cherries, blackcurrant, rose petal, and roasted walnuts. Palate has rich flavors of black cherries, toasted hazelnuts, fresh sage, mocha, and subtle vanilla and oak flavors. Tannins are firm in their youth but will soften with age.
