Bright garnet colored. It displays an intense bouquet made up of ripe black fruits, spices like pepper and licorice complemented by vanilla notes that come out during the aging process. It offers up a juicy, elegant mouth with fruity and herbal flavors.

@ejrunion “We return to reason and faith. There I feel that nothing can befall me in life, — no disgrace, no calamity, (leaving me my eyes,) which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite spaces, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or parcel of God.”
