A bit flat and nutty on the nose with herbal, dried grass base notes that add an attractive dimension to the earthy persimmon and red fruit aromas. This is really well balanced in a fresh style that highlights the supple tannins of Merlot. Excellent, juicy acidity keeps this fresh and lively in the mouth. There's a touch of under-ripeness here that shows up as a base of herbal, earthy flavors, but that just adds complexity to the core of blackberry fruit. There’s a nice touch of oak adding supporting spice notes and an overlay of vanilla. This leads to a moderately long, slightly peppery and savory finish that ends on a candied cranberry note. Pretty solid and an easy to drink offering. 89pts

Kräftiges Rubin-Granat. Blaubeeriger Beginn mit feiner Mokkanote, Heidelbeeren und dunkle Kirschen. Fülliger Auftakt mit reifen Tanninen und tollem Fruchtdruck. Im langen Finale Erdbeeren, Black Kurant und Preiselbeeren, sehr elegant bis am Schluss.


Winemaker's Notes:

A deep purple color packed with bright fruit aromas of blackberry layered with notes of vanilla, anise and nutmeg. Mouthwatering fruit flavors of Bing cherry and vanilla and nutmeg from oak aging. This wine has rich texture with soft tannins and long finish.
