Degustation notes

Dense cherry colour, a bouquet of ripe cherries and blackberries, delicate toasted notes and nuances of tobacco, a medium-bodied palate, pronounced berry aromas, good body, slight spiciness, a wine that can still age.

    Bewertung März 2017 - Ausgezeichnetes Preis-/Qualitätsverhältnis. Für mich erstaunlich, wie gut der noch junge Wein (bewertet Jahrgang 2014) schon ist.
