The wine is ruby red with a more youthful shade. On the nose, there are rich, intense aromas of more than 30 months of maturation in wooden barrels. We notice aromas of wood, vanilla, chocolate, smoke, and tobacco which are upgraded by aromas of fresh and ripe blackberries and red and black currants. The taste of the wine is fresh, rich in exceptional fruitiness (ripe sour cherries, blackberries, and currants) and elegant, almost velvety tannins.
It is excellent with red meat, venison, and aged beef and sheep cheeses. We suggest you try the Syrah Reserve with venison stew with chocolate.
