Intense, deep cherry colour. It needs time to unveil all its aromatic nuances. In the initial attack on the palate it shows its mineral character, with aeration it evolves into nuances of scrub (rosemary) and ends with hints of tobacco and cigar box. Fresh and powerful mouthfeel with great structure, full-bodied but not aggressive A lingering and persistent finish followed by mineral and earthy sensations.
