This wine is a beautiful take on traditional Bordeaux! An aromatic nose of cherry and currant, mixed with spices and floral note. The palate is rich, full-bodied and concentrated with notes of black fruits, like blackberry and cassis, with hints of vanilla.
If you love traditional red Bordeaux, then this wine is for you!
