Tasting Notes

This wine is a captivating blend of indigenous and international varietals. The Duras grapes contribute dark fruit aromas, reminiscent of blackberries and black cherries, while the Syrah and Braucol (25%) add a subtle earthiness and a touch of rustic charm. Completing the blend, Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) lends its distinctive character. The wine's appearance is a rich, dark purple, inviting you into a world of fruity delights, where blackcurrant and cherry notes dance harmoniously with hints of licorice, spice, and pepper. On the palate, it offers a full-bodied experience with firm tannins that pave the way for a delicately fruity finish.
