On the nose, it reveals an array of intoxicating aromas, with crushed stone, exotic spices, licorice, and barbecue smoke swirling around dusky red fruits. The bouquet is mesmerizing, drawing you in with its allure and richness.

Upon the first sip, the wine envelops the palate with a full-bodied and velvety texture. The flavors of blackcurrants, toasted spice, and espresso roast take center stage, accompanied by classic Pauillac lead pencil shavings and graphite nuances. It is a wine that starts slowly but builds incrementally, revealing its true power and complexity with each passing moment.
