An intense garnet red with orange reflections, this wine develops aromas of rose, fruit infused spirits, vanilla, and spices. Opulent and intense body, rich with round, austere tannins, it has great drinkability. Serve at 18° C (64° F) after bringing the bottle to room temperature for 24 hours before drinking.
