Winemaker's Comments  Color:   The wine features an extremely intense ruby-red color
Aroma:  It has an unusually complex bouquet with scents of cherries, red currants and various wild berries in association with vanilla and licorice tones.
Palate:  The wine has a strong 'mountain' imprint which is both refined and mineral based.  It has a big structure and great complexity, soft and velvety because of the richness and perfect maturation of the tannins found in the grapes.
