On the palate it is layered and has earthy, leather, licorice, smoky, raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, cassis, truffles, pepper and new-oak flavours. The finish is medium long and round. This wine is sophisticated.

Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Expressive nose with ethereal fruit, dark berries, black cherries and hints of ripe plums. Mild spices and discreet toasting aroma well integrated. On the palate well balanced with elegant character, fine tannins, juicy fruit and excellent aftertaste. A wine with length and class.

Deep colour. Fragrant floral, violet, blackcurrant aromas with vanilla notes. Fresh blackcurrant, roasted chestnut, inky cherry-cola flavours with looseknit grainy tannins and attractive mid-palate density. Chalky dry plume at the finish. Lovely elegant wine with beautiful aromatic complexity and impact. 94 points
