Dichtes Purpurrot. Kleine, wilde Erdbeeren und Himbeeren in der offenen Nase, unterlegt von delikaten Vanillenoten und etwas Zimtwürze. Warmer, samtiger Gaumen nach roten Beeren, in schöner Harmonie zu den Röstaromen, Milchschokolade; insgesamt sehr eindrucksvoll und weich fliessend, erstklassige Tanninqualität und ein komplexes, langes Finale.

The eye is first impressed by a dense, violet-flecked purple red, and the nose is no less complex, releasing clean-edged impressions of dark cherry, wild strawberries, and raspberries, attractively complemented by spicy nuances of roasted espresso bean, cocoa, baker's chocolate, and vanilla. The palate shows alcoholic warmth, silky texture, and remarkable depth, with a mouth-filling suite of fine-grained tannins. The lengthy finish is subtly aromatic, with tasty notes of fruit in evidence.
