Quite a dense, fairly mineral nose of partly candied citrus fruit with peach notes, some herbs, nutty barrel notes and a hint of caramel. Firm, juicy, again partly candied, slightly warm fruit, fine acidity, grip of crumbly tannin and clear minerality, somewhat nutty and smoky on the palate, persistent, has power, a certain sweetness and melting, with tart tobacco tones, good depth, very good, sweetish-juicy finish with candy notes, minerality, again nutty barrel tones and tart, somewhat smoky spice.

Editor note: Translate to English Deutlich vegetabile und etwas hefige Nase nach teils kandierten Zitrusfrüchten mit Kern- und Steinobstnoten sowie hell-tabakigen Nuancen und recht deutlicher, etwas erdiger Mineralik. Teils kandiertes Gemüse und eingemachte gelbe Fruchte im Mund, tabakige, erdige und mineralische Töne, sehr feine Säure, gewisse Nachhaltigkeit, leichter Gerbstoff, hat Griff und Substanz, noch jung, nussige Spuren, gute Tiefe, recht komplex, sehr guter Abgang.
