Tasting Notes

Enticing notes of black fruits, herbs and liquorice on the nose. Fresh and lithe on the palate with plenty of grip and an earthy note coming through. Solid and dependable as ever! 15 points

Reviews & Scores

Good full ruby-red color. Aromas of kirsch and licorice. Suave and silky on entry and through the mid-palate, with an airy texture and enticing sweetness of fruit. Gains in breadth toward the back, finishing with lovely spicy lift, a fine dusting of even tannins and very good length. 87-90 points
