Ruby red wine  with violet hins. The nose has a fruity character, an intense aroma of red fruits, harmoniously combined with certain touches of pastry and lightly smoked.  It is a balanced wine, silky to the palate with a final taste where the toasted barrel predominates in front of the fruit. Smooth tanins, nice acidity, very juicy and fruity.
