Colour : Bright, intense orange, with hints of mahogany
Nose : Powerful, very oak-forward and assertive, with notes of toffee (coffee/caramel), rancio, toasted bread, vanilla and spice (cinnamon), with hints of brandied fruit.
Palate : Great complexity and an excellent structure and volume, elegant, rancio, vanilla, similar aromas as on the nose.
