The wine was aged for two years in American oak barrels manufactured in-house; the first year in new oak and the second in barrels averaging three years in age. The wine was manually racked four times by the light of a candle.

Medium-depth, cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. Intense aromas from the still glass. Swirling reveals jammy notes of wild red berries, raspberries, red currants and herbs against a balsamic background of vanilla, caramel and roasted coffee. Mild entry, with a medium. Well-balanced body. Fresh and vibrant, with soft tannins and a harmonious, strawberry jam finish. An excellent wine extolling the virtues of this brand.
