    Startet mit einem ausdrucksstarken, offenen Bukett von Kaffee und Kakaopulver. Es folgen Aromen von getrockneten Feigen, Kirschen und Veilchen. Am Gaumen würzig (Salbeiblätter) mit feinkörnigen Gerbstoffen, wodurch er noch etwas zurückhaltend, verschleiert wirkt. Das stramme Gerüst lässt auf ein gutes Lagerpotenzial schliessen.
