This elagant wine is crafted to retain good primary fruit characters and a fine acid tannin balance and structure. The wine was matured in French oak before being bottled. The wine has intense is soft and generous with flavors of dark chocolate with mint on the finish. The tannin structure is fine and smooth yet powerful, and there is enough natural acidity to give it freshness and balance. This wine is ready to drink now, but will further improve when kept in the cellar for up to six to eight years.
