Somewhat developed, slightly smoky and moderately woody nose of ripe black berries with a little dried floral and dark ethereal notes. Slightly ripened fruit also in the mouth, smoky and toasty, very slightly bitterish wood flavours, crumbly-sandy tannin, some warmth, some acid bite, salty notes in the background, hints of sooty tones, good to very good finish.
