"This fabulous Tannat has an intense red violet color with deep black tones. It has aromas to blackberries, figs and dates, which also combine with notes of snuff, vanilla and cinnamon, that come from its 12 months in oak barrels. In mouth, it fells powerful but with fine tannins, with an explosion of flavors that make this wine a real pleasure for the senses."
