"The nose is light and sports honey, vanilla, apple, and toffee. In the mouth, it is spicy thanks to the influence of South American wine like Malbec, with additional notes of leather, pepper, stewed fruit, and chocolate. The finish is medium in length and brings additional hints of dry oak and a faint dash of smoke. "
