A lot of depth, hot and jammy in the front mellow in the back. Stays on the palate for a long time. Def some varietals I'm unfamiliar with. solid value that can be parried with a lot of food.

Excelente, strong yet very smooth in the first contact in the mouth. Very rich in aromas due to its 9 moths in american and french oak. Be aware 14.5%, not for the lightheaded:p
