Bright dark plum hue, aromas of black plums, mushroom and chocolate; flavor notes of bright blueberry pie, and black raspberry framed by cinnamon and oak. Opens up with time in the glass to offer its glory as a lively, wonderful food wine.

Nice interplay between acidity and sweetness, with a firm tannic structure underlying the whole. Meshed with a beef roast AND cookies for desert, go figure. Its acidity was present and playful, but never ventured off the edge into an unpleasant grating acidity. Also, drank well right out of the bottle. 88/

Bright and clean, with juicy raspberry flavor and vivid acidity, this is a simple, everyday kind of wine. Open it with a mushroom pizza.

Auge: Intensive, rubinrote Robe in seiner Jugend, die mit den Jahren in ein Granatrot übergeht; Nase: Charakteristische und intensive Blumen- und Fruchtaromen mit leichten Edelholz-, Vanille- und Gewürznoten; Gaumen: Geschmackreich, mit schöner Präsenz, trocken, rund und samtig; Finale: Mit starker Persönlichkeit!

Raspberry and blueberry aromas lead to a medium body, with delicious fruit and hints of vanilla and cream. Drink now.

Auge: Schöne, rubinrote Robe mit violetten Reflexen; Nase: Aromen schwarzer Beeren, vorwiegend Pflaumen und Brombeeren, und leichte Noten von schwarzem Pfeffer und Zimt; Gaumen: Weiche und runde Tannine verschmelzen sich harmonisch mit den Fruchtaromen; Finale: Frisch, geschmackvoll und lang
