A silky smooth and velvety full-bodied dry red wine, showcasing the elegance of the variety. Classical Syrah character on the nose, with an intense sweet peppery aroma and notes of barrel spices. A full palate rich in fruitiness and rounded out by an acidity that brings the combination of the considerable alcohol and tannins into perfect balance. A ripe and meaty wine, this is a special choice.
