Editor note: Translate to English Tiefer und fester, dabei hochfeiner, sehr komplexer, hefiger, tabakiger und intensiv mineralisch-würziger, auch erdiger und fast ein wenig öliger Duft nach sehr reifen gelben Früchten mit noblen vegetabilen und gewürzigen Tönen. Dicht, reif und saftig im Mund, offenherzige Frucht mit viel Hefe und tabakigen Aromen, auch kräuterig und intensiv erdig-mineralisch, dazu wieder leicht ölig, feine, sehr reife Säure, ungemein nachhaltig am Gaumen, tief und konzentriert, viel Griff, wirkt schon trügerisch zugänglich, zeigt aber erst nach Tagen an der Luft, was er wirklich kann, viel Kraft, aber auch eine betörend subtile Aromatik, unglaublich langer, komplexer, tiefer Nachhall.
