Tasting Notes

    The nose is exceptionally perfumed with an abundance of complex red and dark berry fruit, violets and intense aromas of white pepper.
  • Palate
    Notes of cardamom, cumin, cloves and black pepper. The midpalate is rich, textured and balanced with integrated acidity, cocoa powdery tannins and a definite cedarwood character derived from French oak.
