A determined, hard-as-nails Szekszárd blend in which the dominance of cabernet appears right from the first bouquet.Alongside the berries there is a proportionate spiciness emanating from the barrel, while green herbs add to the complexity.This wine has depth; its taste is vigorous, the berries stream from it, along come the spicy forest fruits and as it closes there is a hint of sweet, eastern spicy playfulness.The tannin is rather more than medium, neither can we describe the alcohol as weak, yet all in all everything falls into place.
