"Opaque ruby. Pungent aromas of cherry pit, black currant, dark chocolate and succulent flowers, with subtle game and cracked pepper notes in the background. Bitter cherry, dark berry and menthol flavors turn livelier as the wine stretches out. Finishes long and spicy, with a resonating black pepper nuance and smooth tannins lending gentle grip. "
