Editor note: Translate to English Leicht entwickelter, etwas getrocknet-floraler und zedriger Duft nach roten und auch schwarzen Beeren mit einem Hauch Lakritz, getrockneten Kräutern, Tabak und Teer. Geradlinige, reife Frucht mit nussigen und erdigen Tönen, ein wenig getrocknet-pflanzlich am Gaumen, wieder auch zedrig, feinsandiges, relativ straffes Tannin, mit Luft aufkommender Säurebiss, gute Nachhaltigkeit, angedeutet holzig, tabakige Nuancen und Kakao im Hintergrund, ein Hauch kandierter Nüsse, etwas Salz, sehr guter Abgang mit Biss. Gewinnt mit Luftzufuhr noch einmal deutlich.
