Description

Its colour is youngish comparing to its age: black core with purple collar. Its nose shows great content: barrel marks, ripe fruits. Its aromas are mainly black and forest berries. The intensity of these pushes into the background the barrel marks both in nose and taste. Its aroma is extremely complex. Blackberry and currant, raspberry, sour cherry, wild pepper, a hint of thyme and freshly cut oregano, mineral marks, „capuccino” and unlimited aftertaste. Tannins are present but support, they are soft and ripe. A really great wine of an unique vintage.
