Editor note: Translate to English Ziemlich fester und tiefer Duft nach eingemachten dunklen Beeren und angetrockneten Kirschen mit bitterschokoladigen und tabakigen Holznoten, einer Spur Ruß, Zwetschgen, Kuchengewürzen und erdigen Tönen. Dunkle, konzentrierte, herb-saftige, leicht kompottige und kandiert wirkende Frucht im Mund, viel dunkel-röstiges Holz und relativ präsentes Tannin, Kraft und sehr gute Nachhaltigkeit am Gaumen, etwas Schokolade und eine Spur Kaffee, erdige Noten, tabakige Anklänge, gute Tiefe, fester Bau, noch jung, im Abgang erst ein wenig spröde, mit Luft dann lang, dicht, saftig und würzig, wenn auch das Holz weiterhin etwas trocknend bleibt. Muss reifen.
