This wine unfolds with gentle, mellowness, revealing initial notes of orange peel and allspice. A brief swirl of the glass introduces subtle hints of camphor and smoky pine resin. The palate exudes opulence, beginning with generous bursts of succulent purple fruit. With a moment's pause, nuances of cola and black pepper surface, accompanied by a subtle warmth reminiscent of confit. The mouthfeel is velvety and indulgent, boasting supple tannins that enhance its luxurious character. The finish is extended and decadent, echoing the deep fruit sensations from the early palate, with just a faint suggestion of black tea and vanilla.
