Ruby-red color of medium-high intensity, with a nose that presents marked balsamic aromas and elegant tones of spice and tobacco leaf. Smoothness dominates in the mouth, adding elegance and maturity to its long finish.
Pair with red meat dishes, roasts, game, and rich-flavored cheeses.

Supple and polished, this red offers dried cherry, floral, vanilla and spicy flavors, fresh and lively. Light tannins and orange peel acidity keep this focused. Expressive and elegant, in the traditional style.

Earthy aromas of cola, coffee and saucy plum lead to a palate that at first seems loud and acidic but which comes around. Plum and berry flavors are accented by oaky vanilla and citrus peel, while this is bright on the finish due to lasting acidity. Drink through 2023.
