A dense, flashy red, displaying a toasty frame of fine tannins, with grilled herb and baking spice notes to the racy cassis, kirsch and plum skin flavors. Well-cut, with ample acidity and a minerally finish.

Farbe: Tiefrot und sehr intensiv. Nase: ausdrucksstarke Noten von schwarzen Früchten, rotem Pfeffer und bitterer Schokolade. Im Gaumen samtig und gut ausbalancierte Tannine mit einer guten Struktur und einem langen Finish.
