Klare, reife, saftige Frucht mit nussigen und altholzigen, auch ganz zart röstigen Noten, Pfeifentabak, Nüssen und einem Hauch dunklen Karamells, recht präsentes, dabei sehr feines Tannin, ein Hauch Kandis, gewürzige Anklänge, nachhaltig, licht erdig und getrocknet-pflanzlich, dann Zitrusfrüchte, hat gewisse Kraft, Konzentration und feine Süße, angedeutet Feigen, mit Luft immer mehr Kräuter und Salz, sehr guter, saftiger Abgang mit betörenden, noblen rotbeerigen Aromen. Gewinnt mit Luft noch an Biss und Zug; Die Nase ist verhalten, aber der Saft dann ganz erstaunlich.
