Wine Information

Written Notes

Good looking in an good condition. Colour is medium. On the nose it is generous. The taste is with complex structure. On the palate it is layered and has blackcurrant, leather and cherry flavours. The finish is round. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 1-5 years.
